Understanding the role of spliceosome gene mutations in disease

The DNA of a cell is copied into a pre-messenger RNA (pre-mRNA) that the cell uses as a template for protein production. Some of the information contained in DNA is not required for making proteins, therefore, unwanted information must be removed before a protein is made. Read more

Development and Evolution of Shapes: Investigating the genetic pathways governing the leaf shape in Arabidopsis

The shapes and sizes of organisms and organs are scrupulously conserved within a species. What regulates the shapes and sizes of organisms and their lateral organs are intriguing and fundamental questions in Biology. Read more

Epigenetic mechanisms of phenotypic plasticity and the evolution of adaptive responses

We now live in a world of rapidly changing environmental conditions where species will need to adapt or perish. While populations may evolve in response to environmental change, more rapid responses may happen through processes like phenotypic plasticity. Read more

The role mRNA-specific translation during chronological aging

Biological ageing can be thought of as a progressive decline in the ability of an organism to survive stress and disease. It is a complex process which is influenced by both genetic and environmental factors. Read more

Defining the physiological role and regulation of biological methylations

The regulation of gene expression and function operates at multiple levels. Metabolic pathways in the cell generate metabolites that directly affect DNA, RNA and proteins, regulating the expression and function of many genes, often feeding back on the very enzymes that catalysed their synthesis. Read more

Uncovering the molecular mechanisms underlying spinal cord regeneration

About 1200 people a year are left paralysed in the UK due to a Spinal Cord Injury (or SCI). This is because injuries involving the central nervous system (CNS) have very poor capacities to regenerate, thus resulting in a permanent loss of function. Read more

Mechanistic analysis of neurodevelopmental disorders caused by mutations in the gene RAC1

RAC1 is a signalling protein that regulates many cellular processes and is essential during embryonic development. We recently discovered a novel genetic disease called RAC1-related neurodevelopmental disorder (RRND) that results from mutations in the RAC1 gene. Read more
