Research interests

Lars Jermiin is an expert in evolutionary biology and bioinformatics, with particular strengths in molecular phylogenetics and comparative genomics. His interests spans the ways in which genes and gene products, populations, and species diverge and adapt to changing environments. He has applied his knowledge and methodologies in a variety of areas, including genome annotation, evolution, biosecurity, and the development of novel enzymes.

Much of his research focuses on developing methods to extract information from genomic data in a statistically sound and computationally efficient manner. His current focus is on promoting a new phylogenetic protocol (NAR Genomics and Bioinformatics 2, lqaa041) — designed to mitigate model misspecification and confirmation bias — and on developing methods and tools to support this protocol. Among these are methods and tools to: (i) detect violations of phylogenetic assumptions; (ii) find optimal models of sequence evolution for data that evolved under clocklike conditions; (iii) obtain phylogenetic estimates from data that evolved under non-clocklike conditions; and (iv) assess whether phylogenetic estimates are affected by ascertainment bias.

In addition, he is doing, or has done, applied research with multiple foci, including:

  • Insect Genome Projects -- He co-led the annotation and comparison of detoxification genes in the cotton bollworm and the corn earworm (BMC Biology 15, 63), the tobacco hornworm (Insect Biochemistry and Molecular Biology 76, 118-147), and two species of bumblebee (Genome Biology 16, 76).
  • Bat1K Genome Project -- He co-led the phylogenetic research in this project (Nature 583, 578-584) and co-leads further phylogenetic research of these data.
  • Plant Chloroplast Genomes -- He leads phylogenetic research of variation in evolutionary processes underpinning the diversity of plant chloroplast genomes.
  • 1KITE Project -- He contributed to this project, with novel strategies and methods for analysing the phylogenomic data (Science 346, 763-767; Science 349, 487).
  • Biosecurity -- He contributed to research identifying the origins and incursion pathways of pests affecting agriculture and livestock (PLoS One 11, e0146699; Scientific Reports 7, 45302).
  • Design Novel Enzymes -- He co-led the project aimed at engineering novel omega-amino acid transaminases for use in a biotechnological setting (Green Chemistry 19, 5375-5380; International Patent Application PCT/AU2014/000617).
