Welcome to the Molecular Ecology, Evolution, and Phylogenetics laboratory in the School of Biological Sciences, The University of Sydney. Led by Nate Lo and Simon Ho, the group is focused on the nexus between evolution, ecology, and genetics/molecular biology. We study evolution at a broad range of temporal scales in diverse taxa, and use a variety of computational and molecular techniques. We are located in a redeveloped laboratory on the top level of the Edgeworth David Building (A11). Click for information about joining MEEP and current Honours projects in the lab. Some media coverage of our research is shown here.
MEEP researchers have revealed connections between populations of hawskill turtles in different oceans and identified management units for conservation.
A number of prizes have been awarded to members of the MEEP lab in the past month.
Charles Foster has won the student poster prize at the 2015 meeting of the Australasian Systematic Botany Society.
