International collaborators visiting Massey


The molecular epidemiology group are looking forward to the visits from three experts in the fields of population genomics and phylogenetics during February. Professor Paul Fearnhead from the Dept of Mathematics and Statistics at Lancaster University has been working with the group to investigate the population genetics of Campylobacter; Professor Martin Maiden from the Dept of Zoology at the University of Oxford is a world renowned expert in the molecular epidemiology of Campylobacter and Neisseria; and Dr Barbara Holland from the School of Mathematics and Physics at the University of Tasmania develops phylogenetic tools to estimate evolutionary trees when complex bacterial processes are occurring such as hybridisation. We are looking forward to welcoming all three visitors to Palmerston North soon.
