Evolution Journal Club

The MEEP lab runs the Evolution Journal Club, where we discuss recent papers on molecular evolution, molecular ecology, phylogenetics, systematics, and macroevolution. Researchers and students interested in evolutionary biology are welcome to attend.

Meetings are 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.

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.
