JAMS celebrated July at the Australian Museum with a diverse series of talks and food and drinks, kindly supported by ASM.

Rita Rapa (UTS) started us off describing the integron/gene cassette system in the Vibrio genus. These gene cassettes add to the adaptive potential of Vibrio and are likely to be an important driver in the evolution of Vibrio in their respective niches. Through whole cell proteomic analysis, deletions in the gene cassette array exhibit altered surface associated structures. Her future work will focus on how these deletions impact Vibrio physiology.

How many microbiologists does it take to change a light bulb? None, as it turns out - the dozens of attendees at June's Joint Academic Microbiology Seminars (JAMS) at the Australian Museum waited patiently through a short blackout for drinks, snacks, and three servings of fresh scientific discussion.

The meeting for June has been scheduled for the 29th.

We've created a new site dedicated to the JAMS community.

This is the place to come to find out about upcoming meetings and comment on passed ones. Please feel free to provide us with feedback!
