Out with the old… time for a freshen up. A new logo for the website, this time with fewer letters, and just simple curves. The white “branches” depict signalling during development; the circle of life… hopefully the colours are self-explanatory.
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.
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.
