Sabrina has been busy explaining what she does in language anyone can understand. She didn’t win the Pitch It Clever competition but I think this marvellous creation is worthy of sharing anyway! Nice one Sabrina 🙂
Our collaborator Dr Gavin Flematti in the School of Molecular Sciences here at UWA is advertising a new PhD project investigating the coloration of flowers in the iconic kangaroo paw Anigozanthos manglesii. If you have experience in natural products chemistry and also want to learn some plant molecular biology with us, check out this collaborative multidisciplinary project here.
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!
