A little belatedly, we announce a new review from Hugh and Mark on karrikin perception and signalling, published in Journal of Experimental Botany. It takes a focussed look on the ligand perception mechanism, from a structural biology perspective. As you can infer from the title, there’s still a lot we don’t understand!
Always happy to get fresh blood into the lab, this time we welcome Andy as an Honours student for 2020. He brings with him much-needed skills in computer science which he will use in the analysis of Karrikins responsive promoters during his research project.
As of Friday 26 July, Perth protein researchers now have a dedicated special interest group – PPG!
Website is now live – http://perthproteins.org
Supported and ratified by the Australian Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (ASBMB), this group will give a platform, especially for postgrad students and ECRs, to showcase the diversity of protein-focused research that WA has to offer and find expertise and technologies available locally
Keep an eye out for updates @PerthProteins.
Following on from the announcement of @IPMB2021, the ASPB has launched a logo competition! Win cash and a free rego to IPMB2021 in Cairns.
