E&E Webinar: Stereo vision and prey detection in the praying mantis »

4pm 23 July 2020

Praying mantises are the only insects known to have stereo vision. We used a comparative approach to determine how the mechanisms underlying stereopsis in mantises differ from those underlying primate stereo vision.

PS Webinar Series: The stem rust fungus Puccinia graminis f. sp. tritici induces centromeric small RNAs during late infection that direct genome-wide...

12pm 22 July 2020

Silencing of transposable elements (TEs) is essential for maintaining genome stability. Plants use small RNAs (sRNAs) to direct DNA methylation to TEs (RNA-directed DNA methylation; RdDM). Similar mechanisms of epigenetic silencing in the fungal kingdom have remained elusive.

PS Webinar Series: PhD Exit Webinar - The SWEET Journey from Source to Sink in Setaria viridis: The Role of Sugar Effluxers »

12pm 17 July 2020

This research project investigates how photoassimilates moves from source leaves to other sink tissues that accumulate large amounts of carbohydrates. Many sinks such as stem and seeds/grains rely on the accumulation of sugars and starch during their development as they mature and become storage tissue.

E&E Joint Webinar: Some benefits of blue sky and open phylogenetics research for understanding SARS-CoV-2 »

12.30pm 9 July 2020

Having spent much of the last 15 years trying to improve molecular phylogenetics, I had formed the fairly firm view that my research was very interesting (of course!!!) but rather useless in the short term.

E&E Joint Webinar: Walking in Wallacea: Expanding the species inventory on Buton Island, Sulawesi »

12pm 9 July 2020

The central islands of Indonesia, between Java, Bali and Kalimantan (Borneo) on the west and Papua on the east - are a living laboratory for the study of evolution, known as the Wallacea region.

E&E Webinar: Extreme Weapons: A Natural History »

11am 2 July 2020

Every animal has a weapon of one sort or another, but the overwhelming majority of weapons stay small. Yet, sprinkled through the tree of life are species where weapons become extreme.

PS Webinar Series: The many fungal hosts of ToxA - Near complete genomes give new insight into old stories of horizontal gene transfer »

12pm 1 July 2020

Most known examples of horizontal gene transfer (HGT) between eukaryotes are ancient. These events are identified primarily using phylogenetic methods on coding regions alone.

PS Webinar Series: PhD Exit Webinar - Identifying pathogenicity factors in the wheat pathogen Zymoseptoria tritici via transcriptomic analysis and...

12pm 26 June 2020

Zymoseptoria tritici is a host-specific necrotrophic pathogen, causing Septoria tritici blotch (STB) disease on wheat leaves. Although substantial efforts have been made to identify pathogenicity factors in Z. tritici, the genetic components contributing to the qualitative/quantitative virulence
