Organizing, supporting and linking the world marine biodiversity research community
(2015-02-10) - Journal item,
2A - the "go-to" technology for transgene co-expression
(2015-08-26) - Journal item,
In order to co-express multiple genes for biotechnological and biomedical applications, several approaches have been used with varying degrees of success. Currently, internal ribosome entry site (IRES) elements and ...
Evolution of homeobox gene clusters in animals : the Giga-cluster and primary versus secondary clustering
(2016-04-14) - Journal item,
The Hox gene cluster has been a major focus in evolutionary developmental biology. This is because of its key role in patterning animal development and widespread examples of changes in Hox genes being linked to the evolution ...
Mechanisms of gene duplication and translocation and progress towards understanding their relative contributions to animal genome evolution
(2012) - Journal item,
Duplication of genetic material is clearly a major route to genetic change, with consequences for both evolution and disease. A variety of forms and mechanisms of duplication are recognised, operating across the scales 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 ...
What is biodiversity?
(2010-12-15) - Journal item,
Time is of the essence for ParaHox homeobox gene clustering.
(2013-06) - Journal item,
ParaHox genes, and their evolutionary sisters the Hox genes, are integral to patterning the anterior-posterior axis of most animals. Like the Hox genes, ParaHox genes can be clustered and exhibit the phenomenon of colinearity ...
The meaning of death : evolution and ecology of apoptosis in protozoan parasites
(2011-12) - Journal item,
The discovery that an apoptosis-like, programmed cell death (PCD) occurs in a broad range of protozoan parasites offers novel therapeutic tools to treat some of the most serious infectious diseases of humans, companion ...
