Understanding how leaves develop

Plants utilize "boundaries" of genes expression to help decide where to position and how to shape leaves. This project will investigate how these boundaries control plant developmen more...

The role of a novel mutant gene in dementia and motor neuron disease

We have identified a new gene that when mutated causes dementia and motor neuron disease (MND), diseases that are currently incurable. This project will examine how this mutated gen more...

Mycoviruses of rust pathogens

Most if not all rust species that have been studied to date carry mycovisues. The role of these hyperparasites is not understood at all. The project will undertake sequencing of myc more...
