Understanding the molecular mechanisms of plant disease resistance

Plant pathogens pose major challenges both to crop production and to the resilience of natural ecosystems. How we protect plants from their most damaging pathogens is therefore vital to a future of sustainable agriculture and forestry. Read more

The success of strategic restoration for pollinator connectivity

Climate change threatens the sustainability of the pollination service, on which our food supply and all ecosystems depend. One way to tackle this challenge is to expand, improve and connect up wildflower-rich habitats. Read more

EASTBIO - Structural and biological characterisation of a novel virulence mechanism in Gram-negative pathogens

Gram-negative pathogens are responsible for major disease problems in humans and animals, and a better understanding of the mechanisms for how these bacteria cause infections is key to identify more effective ways to prevent and treat outbreaks. Read more

EASTBIO: Understanding how plant pathogen effector proteins contribute to host range and nonhost disease resistance

Crop diseases destroy more than 25 % of our food each year. Protecting crops with pesticides represents a considerable financial and environmental challenge. To develop new strategies to combat disease it is important to understand the molecular and cell biology of how microbial plant pathogens cause disease.  .

EASTBIO - Dinoflagellate parasite strategies for success: synchronisation with host (Norway lobster) seasonality and metabolic adaptations

Hematodinium sp. is a dinoflagellate parasite that, from a host range perspective, is a generalist, infecting a variety of wild and commercially very valuable crustacean species (Davies et al., 2019; Wang et al., 2017). Parasites use different life cycle and metabolic adaptations to achieve efficient transmission.
