Nodulation in legumes

Legumes are an interesting plant to study due to their symbiotic relationship with nitrogen fixing bacteria called Rhizobia, which are housed within specialised root structures called nodules. The work of ANU researchers has been very important for our understanding of symbiosis, nodule formation and nitrogen fixation.

PS Seminar Series - How will plants adapt to a high CO2 world?

12pm 1 Jul 2024
In this talk I will discuss our progress in understanding the impact of eCO2 concentrations on a forest ecosystem using data from the Free-Air Carbon dioxide Enrichment (FACE) site at the Birmingham Institute for Forest Research (BIFoR), and show some recent data of the effects on the nutritional status of seed.

PS Seminar Series: Targets of powdery mildew avirulence effectors in barley

12pm 2 Jul 2024
Blumeria hordei (Bh) causes the powdery mildew disease of barley. In resistant barley lines, the RNase-like Bh AVRA effectors are recognized by immune receptors encoded at the barley Mildew locus a (Mla).

PS Seminar Series - Photosynthesis promotes pre-protein processing of chloroplast SEC and TAT cargoes

3.30pm 12 Jul 2024
Results show that the processing of a specific module of Photosystem-associated proteins and concomitantly progression of chloroplast biogenesis depend on active photosynthesis early in plant development.
