16:00 - EVENT - CMCA Seminar Series: Computer-aided detection/diagnosis of breast cancer in multi-modal MRI More Information
A recent meta-study concluded that the use of computer-aided detection/diagnosis (CAD) "in breast MRI has little influence on the sensitivity and specificity of experienced radiologists and therefore their interpretation remains essential". In this talk I describe ongoing collaborative (...)
Thursday 12
13:00 - SEMINAR - The role of mechanism in behavioural ecology: sex allocation as a paradigm : Animal Biology Seminar Series More Information
Much of behavioural ecology theory has been developed assuming little in the way of genetic or mechanistic detail. Indeed, no doubt much of the success of the behavioural ecology approach has come from providing general predictions about behaviour. However, behavioural ecologists are often exhorted (...)
Friday 27
11:00 - VISITING SPEAKER - More than Junk: Roles for Transposons in Regulation of Chromatin State and Gene Expression : Transposable elements are ubiquitous components of many eukaryotic genomes More Information
These sequences are often considered as genomic parasites or as "junk" DNA once they lose the ability to transpose. However, these transposable elements may provide complex interactions with the genome and epigenome. THIS SEMINAR JOINTLY PRESENTED BY ARC CoE Plant Energy Biology and UWA (...)

16:00 - SEMINAR - The Amazing Cavitation Bubble- from Ship Propellors to Medical Supertools : This seminar is part of the Centre for Water Research seminar series. Website | More Information
We generally think of bubbles as benign and harmless and yet they can manifest the most remarkable range of physical effects. Some of those effects are the stuff of our every day experience as in the tinkling of a brook or the sounds of breaking waves at the beach. But even these mundane effects (...)
Thursday 05
12:00 - SEMINAR - Long term studies of mammal life history, sexual selection and conservation: insectivorous marsupials and Melanesian flying foxes. : Animal Biology Seminar Series. More Information
This talk will address two current research topics: evolutionary ecology of dasyurid marsupials, and conservation ecology of tropical mammals. In some genera of small insect-eating marsupials but in no other mammals, escalating stress hormones during the breeding season cause immune system collapse (...)

16:00 - SEMINAR - CMCA Seminar Series: Highly Multiparametric Analysis with Mass Cytometry More Information
Mass cytometry marries the resolution, specificity and sensitivity of atomic stable isotope mass spectrometry to the high-throughput, single-cell analytical advantages of flow cytometry. By substituting molecular probes conjugated with stable isotope tags for fluorescence, a large increase is (...)
Thursday 19
17:00 - PUBLIC LECTURE - Soils and the ends of the Earth, and a few places in between : Hector and Andrew Stewart Memorial Lecture, by Professor David Hopkins, Dean of Agriculture, The Royal Agricultural University, England, UK Website | More Information
2015 is the International Year of Soils. So what? It has frequently been said that soils are the thin skin on the land surface upon which terrestrial life depends and which acts as a buffer between the atmosphere, the hydrosphere and the biosphere, as well as representing a significant reservoir of (...)
