Thanks everyone who turned up for the final JAMS of 2014. Great presentations, quality beer and pizza and that special JAMS hummm that fills a room. Looking to the future 2015 will be a big year. We have our fourth annual symposium on the 25th of February with a stellar line up of guest speakers, along with the bioinformatics/biostatistics workshop from the 23rd-24th Feb. Also by March we should have the TOF-SIMS up and running at UNSW. Finally, in the new year and based on the JAMS Inc network we will be launching the Australian Microbial Biotechnology Alliance (AMBA) to unite researchers in this space and increase lobbying capacity for large funding opportunities. Thanks again everyone for a fantastic year. Have a great break and we'll see you in 2015.

UPDATE: Live musical entertainment for the night will be provided by local jazz band Alice Terry and the Skinny White Boys. We encourage you to check this great act out here.
The time has come to celebrate a massively successful year for JAMS and look to an even more exciting future. JAMS is continuing to grow, with new sponsors and a diversification of activities and outreach. In addition to a year of great presentations and our involvement in National Science Week, 2013 also saw the awarding of the first “JAMS grant” with a LIEF project funded by the ARC. To acknowledge these successes, and to celebrate our 3 year anniversary, this year's annual dinner and symposium will be even BIGGER and BETTER than previous years.
