Jams

Registration is now available!

The 4th Annual JAMS Symposium will be held on Wednesday the 25th of February 2015 at the Australian Museum followed by an evening meal amongst the dinosaurs. We have a fantastic guest speaker line up for the symposium including Colin Murrell, Stefan Wuertz, Lisa Moore and Kat Holt. We promise no less than a night to remember.

Attention students! There is a student poster session with a prize of $500 for the winner.

The symposium and dinner will be preceded by a two day workshop (23rd - 24th February) also at the museum. The main purpose being to introduce postgrads and early career postdocs to current approaches used in scruitinising microbial community and genomic datasets. 

This year's workshop is hands-on and will require a 64bit laptop with a minimum of 2GB of memory. Attendees will also need to install VirtualBox. Workshop registration cost is $290.

Registration and payment for both events is being provided through EventBrite. Please follow the links provided below.

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.
