Last week Ryan visited members of the Computational Biology Research Initiative at the University of Melbourne. This research initiative seeks to facilitate interdisciplinary research in computational biology, between departments and schools within the university, and with external researchers. The university has also recently started up an undergraduate programme in Computational Biology.
Ryan presented a seminar, as part of the Mathematical and Computational Biology seminar series, about our lab’s recent work on island biogeography. He met with researchers whose work applies mathematical and computational techniques to a range of topics including epidemic diseases, cell biology and genetics.
