    Brummitt, Neil; Bachman, Steven; Griffiths-Lee, Janine; Lutz, Maiko; Moat, Justin; Farjon, Aljos; Donaldson, John; Hilton-Taylor, Craig; Meagher, Thomas Robert; Albuquerque, Sara; Aletrari, Elina; Andrews, A. Kei; Atchison, Guy; Baloch, Elisabeth; Barlozzini, Barbara; Brunazzi, Alice; Carretero, Julia; Celesti, Marco; Chadburn, Helen; Ciafoni, Eduardo; Cockel, Chris; Coldwell, Vanessa; Concetti, Benedetta; Contu, Sara; Crook, Vicki; Dyson, Philippa; Gardiner, Lauren; Ghanim, Nadia; Greene, Hannah; Groom, Alice; Harker, Ruth; Hopkins, Della; Khela, Sonia; Lakeman-Fraser, Poppy; Lindon, Heather; Lockwood, Helen; Loftu, Christine; Lombrici, Debora; Lopez-Poveda, Lucia; Lyon, James; Malcolm-Tompkins, Patricia; McGregor, Kirsty; Moreno, Laura; Murray, Linda; Nazar, Keara; Nic Lughadha, Eimear (2015-08-07) - Journal article
    Plants provide fundamental support systems for life on Earth and are the basis for all terrestrial ecosystems; a decline in plant diversity will be detrimental to all other groups of organisms including humans. Decline in ...
  • Models incorporating chromatin modification data identify functionally important p53 binding sites 

    Lim, Ji-Hyun; Iggo, Richard Derek; Barker, Daniel (2013-06) - Journal article
    Genome-wide prediction of transcription factor binding sites is notoriously difficult. We have developed and applied a logistic regression approach for prediction of binding sites for the p53 transcription factor that ...
  • Plant biodiversity drivers in Brazilian campos rupestres : insights from phylogenetic structure 

    Zappi, Daniela C.; Freire Moro, Marcelo; Meagher, Thomas R.; Nic Lughadha, Eimear (2017-12-19) - Journal article
    Old, climate-buffered infertile landscapes (Ocbils) have attracted increasing levels of interest in recent years because of their exceptionally diverse plant communities. Brazil’s campos rupestres (rupestrian grasslands) ...
  • Rapidly evolving genes and stress adaptation of two desert poplars, Populus euphratica and P. pruinosa 

    Zhang, Jian; Xie, Penghui; Lascoux, Martin; Meagher, Thomas Robert; Liu, Jianquan (2013-06-11) - Journal article
    Understanding which genes have evolved rapidly with the recent tree speciation in arid habitats can provide valuable insights into different adaptation mechanisms. We employed a comparative evolutionary analysis of expressed ...
  • The role of edaphic environment and climate in structuring phylogenetic pattern in seasonally dry tropical plant communities 

    Moro, Marcelo Freire; Silva, Igor Aurélio; Araújo, Francisca Soares de; NIc Lughadha, Eimear; Meagher, Thomas Robert; Martins, Fernando Roberto (2015-03-23) - Journal article
    Seasonally dry tropical plant formations (SDTF) are likely to exhibit phylogenetic clustering owing to niche conservatism driven by a strong environmental filter (water stress), but heterogeneous edaphic environments and ...
  • Synthesis centers as critical research infrastructure 

    Baron, Jill; Specht, Alison; Garnier, Eric; Bishop, Pamela; Campbell, Andrew; Davis, Frank; Fady, Bruno; Field, Dawn; Gross, Louis; Guru, Siddeswara; Halpern, Benjamin; Hampton, Stephanie; Leavitt, Peter; Meagher, Thomas Robert; Ometto, Jean; Parker, John; Price, Richard; Rawson, Casey; Rodrigo, Allen; Sheble, Laura; Winter, Marten (2017-08) - Journal article
    Synthesis centers offer a unique amalgam of culture, infrastructure, leadership, and support that facilitates creative discovery on issues crucial to science and society. The combination of logistical support, postdoctoral ...
