Genetic tools for studying adaptation and the evolution of behavior
(2002-12) - Journal item,
The rapid expansion of genomic and molecular genetic techniques in model organisms, and the application of these techniques to organisms that are less well studied genetically, make it possible to understand the genetic ...
CRISPR interference : a structural perspective
(2013-06) - Journal item,
CRISPR (cluster of regularly interspaced palindromic repeats) is a prokaryotic adaptive defence system, providing immunity against mobile genetic elements such as viruses. Genomically encoded crRNA (CRISPR RNA) is used by ...
The Hox-TALE has been wagging for a long time
(2014-03-18) - Journal item,
Hox and TALE proteins interact in a sea anemone, just as they do in flies and mice, indicating that the Hox-TALE system originated very early in animal evolution.
Migratory connectivity of Palearctic-African migratory birds and their responses to environmental change : the serial residency hypothesis
(2014-07) - Journal item,
In most long-distance migratory birds, juveniles migrate without their parents and so are likely to lack detailed knowledge of where to go. This suggests the potential for stochasticity to affect their choice of wintering ...
Organizing, supporting and linking the world marine biodiversity research community
(2015-02-10) - Journal item,
Missing the trees for the wood : why we are failing to see success in pro-poor conservation
(2014-08) - Journal item,
Pro-poor conservation strategies are touted as a panacea for achieving biodiversity conservation and poverty reduction, yet there remains limited evidence for success in achieving these dual objectives. Is this lack of ...
Ecology drives intragenomic conflict over menopause
(2014-02) - Journal item,
Menopause is the transition from reproductive to non-reproductive life well before natural death. Rather than involving a smooth, rapid change, it is normally preceded by a long period of erratic hormonal fluctuation that ...
Specialized membrane domains of plasmodesmata, plant intercellular nanopores
(2014-09-30) - Journal item,
