    • Burkholderia pseudomallei genome plasticity associated with genomic island variation 

      Tumapa, Sarinna; Holden, Matthew T. G.; Vesaratchavest, Mongkol; Wuthiekanun, Vanaporn; Limmathurotsakul, Direk; Chierakul, Wirongrong; Feil, Edward J.; Currie, Bart J.; Day, Nicholas P. J.; Nierman, William C.; Peacock, Sharon J. (2008-04-25) - Journal article
      Background: Burkholderia pseudomallei is a soil-dwelling saprophyte and the cause of melioidosis. Horizontal gene transfer contributes to the genetic diversity of this pathogen and may be an important determinant of virulence ...
    • Efficient genome engineering of Toxoplasma gondii using CRISPR/Cas9 

      Sidik, Saima M.; Hackett, Caroline G.; Tran, Fanny; Westwood, Nicholas J.; Lourido, Sebastian (2014-06-27) - Journal article
      Toxoplasma gondii is a parasite of humans and animals, and a model for other apicomplexans including Plasmodium spp., the causative agents of malaria. Despite many advances, manipulating the T. gondii genome remains labor ...
    • A model for selection of eyespots on butterfly wings 

      Sekimura, Toshio; Venkataraman, Chandrasekhar; Madzvamuse, Anotida (2015-11-04) - Journal article
      Unsolved Problem The development of eyespots on the wing surface of butterflies of the family Nympalidae is one of the most studied examples of biological pattern formation. However, little is known about the mechanism ...
