BSB Seminar: Silently Shaping Structure – Probing for an association between codon usage and very local protein structure »

1pm 4 August 2022

One of the most fundamental assumptions in biology is that the amino acid sequence defines protein structure and that this sequence carries no memory of the specific mRNA codon sequence from which it was translated.

PS Seminar Series: Tales of alternative translation initiation and cysteine oxidation in Arabidopsis »

3.30pm 29 July 2022

Post-translational modifications (PTMs) greatly expand proteome complexity and can dynamically tune protein function. Already during their synthesis, proteins are co-translationally processed and N-α-acetylated at their N-terminus.

E&E Seminar - Key questions on flowering plant diversification »

1pm 28 July 2022

The rise of angiosperms (flowering plants) was a major revolution in Earth’s history, yet many aspects of their diversification remain unresolved.

PS PhD Exit Seminar - Plant Wi-Fi : volatile signals during development »

3.30pm 22 July 2022

As sessile organisms, plants have evolved a multitude of mechanisms to acclimate to their environment enabling the plant to optimise development and reproduction, and fight off or resist both biotic and abiotic stresses they may encounter through their life cycle.

BSB Seminar: Molecular mechanisms underscoring mitochondrial disease »

1pm 22 July 2022

Mitochondrial diseases (MDs) are the largest and most common group of inherited metabolic disorders. They comprise over 350 monogenic diseases and affect at least one child born each week in Australia.

PS PhD Exit Seminar: Finding Microbes: Frass and Gut Microbiomes of Saproxylic and Forest Floor Invertebrates  »

10.30am 20 July 2022

Host-microbe associations have been, and continue to be, an area of great interest.

PS PhD Exit Seminar - Redesigning phosphoenolpyruvate carboxylase for improved catalysis in C4 photosynthesis  »

9.30am 11 July 2022

C4 photosynthesis, a carbon concentrating mechanism, evolved as an adaptation to improve photosynthetic CO2 assimilation in terrestrial plants under conditions of low CO2, increased temperatures and varying rainfall patterns.

PS Seminar Series - When to open or close the door: exploring cell-to-cell communication via plasmodesmata closure in stress signalling »

3.30pm 8 July 2022

Cell-to-cell communication is essential for the co-ordination of responses in all multicellular organisms. One mechanism plants employ as defence against pathogens is restriction of cell-to-cell communication by plasmodesmata closure during infection.
