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.
Associate Professor Simon Ho has won the Eureka Prize for Outstanding Early Career Researcher for his work on molecular clocks.
MEEP member Martyna Molak has been awarded her PhD, while Luana Lins has submitted her PhD thesis. Congratulations!
Members of the MEEP lab ran a 2-day workshop on phylogenetic analysis, attended by 40 researchers from a range of institutions.
