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.
The MEEP lab ran a 3-day workshop on Advanced Phylogenetic Analysis at the Australian National University.
MEEP student Daej Arab has been awarded his Master of Science degree, for his thesis entitled "Australian Nasutitermitinae: Phylogenetics, Evolution, and Biodiversity".
MEEP Honours student Cara Van Der Wal has received prizes for her conference presentations.
