Microbiology is undergoing a revolution brought about by advances in next-generation DNA sequencing. Researchers are now required to understand an array of bioinformatics principles and tools to interpret the vast amounts of data being generated. Presented by leading Australian researchers, TOAST is a 2-day event aimed at postgraduate students and early career postdocs providing in-depth hands-on tutorials and demos encompassing concepts and software available to molecular microbiologists and microbial ecologists including:
 
  • 16S rDNA amplicon analysis workflows with UPARSE
  • Comparative genomics with Mauve
  • Shotgun metagenome annotation with FOCUS/SUPERFOCUS
  • Microbial phylogenetics
  • Multivariate statistics for microbial ecology
  • Sequence QC, genome assembly and annotation using Genomics Virtual Laboratory

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.

It's that time of the year again and I'm not talking about Santa Claus. It's time for our second anniversary JAMS Presentation and Banquet. This year has been full of milestones including a microbiology display at the Australian Museum for grade school students and a trip to the Hawkesbury RIver to visit the new campus of the University of Western Sydney. JAMS also has some exciting news -- we will be incorporating next year which will make us bigger, better and official.
 
February 27th 2013 marks the second Annual JAMS Dinner at the Australian Museum with an expanded schedule, some great speakers from around the world and a poster session for PhD students. The Skeleton Gallery and over 100 skeletons -- including the horseman and the movable bicycle-riding man will play host to the banquet.
As an incentive for students to present their work, the best poster will be awarded with the Jeff Powell Perpetual Student Award.
 
The rest of the meeting is detailed below.

Event Date: 
Wednesday, March 6, 2013 (All day) - Thursday, March 7, 2013 (All day)

The Molecular Microbiology Meeting for 2013 has been booked for March 6th and 7th at Waterview in Bicentenial Park, Sydney, NSW. Please put the date in your diaries.

Note that the venue has changed and we are planning a meeting over 2 days. For those travelling interstate there is accommodation nearby at the Novotel and Ibis Hotels. You can book accommodation on the registration page.

Holding the meeting over 2 days has allowed us to invite more speakers and make more space for oral presentations selected from abstracts so please plan your abstract and register for the meeting so that we can include you in the program. Closing date for oral presentations will be October 26th.

The program will include:
Professor David Livermore - Drug resistance (Keynote) University of East Anglia (UEA) and Health Protection Agency, London UK

A/Professor Leo Poon - Emerging viruses (Keynote) University of Hong Kong

Professor Tom Riley -    C.difficile (Keynote) University of Western Australia
