A/Prof Bastien Llamas is an ARC Future Fellow at the University of Adelaide.

He is interested in ancient DNA methylation and the role of epigenetic mechanisms in mammalian adaptation to changing environments.

Bastien is also Chairperson of the Epigenetics Consortium of South Australia Inc. (EpiCSA).


Early in 2008, Sue Clark brought a handful of epigenetics researchers from Australia together to form the Australian Epigenetics Alliance. The AEpiA has now grown to a membership of over 400, with members spanning not only Australasia, but the globe.  We hosted our seventh flagship conference, Epigenetics 2017 in Brisbane, and our VIC team is busy preparing for Epigenetics 2020 in Melbourne in November – watch this space!
