Thursday 01
8:30 - CONFERENCE - Neolife The Inaugural Rest of the World SLSA Conference : Presented by SymbioticA and The Society for Literature Science and The Arts Website | More Information
From the odd to the mundane, new forms of life are emerging in labs, workshops and studios. With the promise of exploitation for health and wealth we are seeing life as it previously never existed, albeit smothered in hyperbole, rhetoric and speculation. How do cultures such as Indigenous Australia (...)

A public lecture by John Statton and Gary Kendrick, UWA Oceans Institute.

At The University of Western Australia's Oceans Institute, and in collaboration with industry partners and international experts, we are developing large scale restoration techniques that can be used to both (...)
Thursday 15
16:00 - SEMINAR - CMCA Seminar: High-resolution solid-state NMR techniques: principles and advanced applications to small molecules and materials More Information
This presentation will address selected case studies applied to a range of different problems of relevance to materials science, catalysis, environmental applications or pharmaceutical and petroleum industries, difficult to solve by other solid-state characterisation tools. The presentation is (...)
Monday 19
16:00 - SEMINAR - Plant Biology Research Seminar : Resistance gene identification in Brassica napus: a pan genome approach More Information
In order to meet the increasing demands on agriculture by a growing global population, a comprehensive understanding of the limiting and destructive factors in our current agricultural practices, is necessary. One of these key areas of knowledge is the intrinsic relationship between plant and (...)
Friday 23
12:00 - SEMINAR - Plant Biology Research Seminar : Genetic and Molecular Mechanisms Regulating both Seed Dormancy and Flowering More Information
For annual plants, the seasonal timings of seed germination and of flowering are important life cycle events with significant implications for ecological adaptation and fitness. Synchronized germination and reproduction are also critical for efficient production of annual crops. We have used (...)
Monday 26
16:00 - SEMINAR - Plant Biology Research Seminar : Quantitative estimation of fitness cost associated with glyphosate resistance in Echinochloa colona More Information
A population of Echinochloa colona from the northern region of Western Australia evolved glyphosate resistance after 10 years of glyphosate selection and the expression of associated fitness costs in this population was studied. When assessing fitness costs associated with resistance, it is crucial (...)
Tuesday 27
16:00 - SEMINAR - CMCA Seminar Series: "Stem Cell Mechanobiology: developing smart biomaterials to control stem cell fate" More Information
Stem cells rely on, and are finely tuned to respond to, their immediate microenvironment, which can be exceedingly complex. Biomaterials must present cells with finely tuned mechanical cues to systematically examine their control over development or pathological insults. In this talk I will (...)
Thursday 29
12:00 - ALUMNI EVENT - Friends of Grounds Plant Sale More Information
Don't miss the UWA Friends of the Grounds Plant Sale on Thursday 29th and Friday 30th October between 12 and 2pm in the Taxonomic Garden, near the Botany glasshouses.

There are exotic and native plants as well as succulents and herbs. Sales are cash only and prices are around $5 with (...)

Monday 09
16:00 - SEMINAR - Plant Biology Research Seminar : Why an ARC Training Centre for Forest Value More Information
My talk will discuss the need for investment in adding value and capacity to the forest products sector given the severe contraction in research activity and training nationally over the last 5 years.

The Training Centre, which commences on 1 January 2016, will build the capacity to (...)
Tuesday 10
16:00 - SEMINAR - CMCA Seminar Series: "How does your nanoporous crystal grow?" More Information
The framework structures of nanoporous crystals are varied and complex and the solutions from which the crystals grow a soup of hundreds of pre-nucleation species each competing for supremacy. Yet conditions can normally be found under which it is possible to prepare a pure phase where there is one (...)
Wednesday 11
10:00 - CONFERENCE - GeneMappers 2015 : Conference focusing on novel concepts for the genetic dissection of common complex human diseases. Website | More Information
The GeneMappers conference has traditionally focused on novel concepts for the genetic dissection of common complex human diseases. This year the emphasis of the conference will be on exploring these themes in detail, with a particular focus on the contemporary methods and techniques that will take (...)
Monday 16
16:00 - SEMINAR - Plant Biology Research Seminar : Nutrient Utilization Efficiency: What we can learn from the theoretical models More Information
The human food security rests in the improvement of food distribution as well as in the increase of crops production through development of sustainable agricultural activity. In this context, enabling efficient use of essential mineral elements originally present in the soils as well as those added (...)
Sunday 22
8:30 - SEMINAR - Legumes as the Hub of Diversification and Adaptation to Climate Change in Agriculture Website | More Information
The global population will run out of food unless science can generate sufficient new crops that bear resilience to the current and increasing yield limitations of temperature extremes, water availability and salt tolerance and nutrient efficiency. In short, we need a third food revolution, to (...)
Monday 23
16:50 - SEMINAR - Plant Biology Research Seminar : Tales of two colours: Leaf development in phosphorus-efficient Hakea prostrata More Information
Population growth and aspirational food consumption continue to exert increasing pressure on our ability to produce sufficient food. One agronomic practice critical for the high levels of food production we now enjoy is phosphate fertilisation, but easily obtained sources of phosphate are dwindling (...)
Thursday 26
13:10 - SEMINAR - "A cutting-age toolkit for measuring and monitoring ecosystem services at the site-scale." : Animal Biology Seminar More Information
Information on ecosystem services has often been unavailable at the site scale, where most land-use decisions are made. Thus there is an urgent need for simple, and yet robust protocols for assessing ecosystem services that are adaptable to a wide range of sites, are replicable over time, and are (...)
