Evolution Journal Club

Researchers interested in evolutionary biology are welcome to attend the Evolution Journal Club, normally held on the first Tuesday of each month during term. We meet at 4 pm in the Forest Lodge Hotel on Arundel St, Forest Lodge. We discuss recent papers on molecular evolution, molecular ecology, phylogenetics, systematics, and macroevolution.

The journal club provides opportunities for meeting researchers interested in evolution, to discuss current topics, and to share and exchange expert knowledge. We particularly encourage research students to participate in the journal club.

Please check the Evolution Journal Club page for details of past and upcoming events.

Sydney Phylogenetic Analysis Meeting

The Sydney Phylogenetic Analysis Meeting (SPAM) will be a one-day symposium with a focus on phylogenetic analysis. It will bring together a number of research groups in the Sydney region. The event will be by invitation only. The event is planned for mid-2016, with details to be announced early in the year.


Our research group hosts workshops on statistical methods in evolutionary biology. Workshops held in Sydney are free to attend, including our annual July workshop on phylogenetics. We have also run workshops at other venues, including the National Herbarium of NSW (Royal Botanic Garden, Sydney), Australian National University, University of Melbourne, and University of New South Wales. Some of our workshops have been offered in conjunction with COMBINE or with the Genetics Society of Australasia Conference.
