MSc by Research: Signaling pathways controlling epidermal development in cereals

Plants living on land face brutal threats from pests, dehydration and temperature. To survive and thrive, land plants evolved a waxy ‘cuticle’ and distinctive epidermal cells such as gas pores and defensive barbs. Read more

MSc by Research: Jasmonate control of barley development

From the earliest farmers to modern plant breeders, humans have continually modified the body plan of cereals, sometimes drastically, to generate higher grain yields. Read more

MSc by Research: The Generation Gap – understanding tissue communication during grain development

Cereal grain provides more calories than any other source to our diet, making grain production vital to food security. We study grain development in barley, a globally important cereal, and a powerful genetic model system. Read more

MSc by Research: Regulation of Architecture in Barley

Plant architecture, or body plan, plays a key role in determining grain yield of crop plants. However, we have little understanding of the molecular genetic basis of architecture in the temperate cereals such as barley (Hordeum vulgare L.), especially in comparison to the warm weather crops such as rice (Oryza sativa). Read more

MSc by Research: Bacillus subtilis intraspecies interactions

Bacillus subtilis is a Gram-positive, spore-forming bacterium that resides in intestinal tracts, soil, and on plant surfaces. B. subtilis, alongside other Bacillus species, presents a promising plant growth–promoting rhizobacteria. Read more

MSc by Research: Function of presomitic mesoderm specific phosphorylation of the Notch intracellular domain in somitogenesis

The Notch signalling pathway is one of the key pathways required for the developing embryo. It is especially important for the process of somitogenesis, the formation of body segments that develop into e.g. Read more

MSc by Research: Degrade or die: Understanding proteasome regulation upon stress

The Rousseau lab is interested in decoding how protein degradation by the proteasome is regulated in cells so that accumulation of unfolded, misfolded, or damaged proteins can be cleared before they become deleterious. Read more

MSc by Research: Nutrient-dependent regulation of microglia function and immune responses

Microglia are constantly sensing the brain environment for metabolic changes, damage and pathogenic invasion. Microglia are highly metabolically active, with activation in response to inflammatory stimulation increasing glycolytic demand. Read more

MSc by Research: Resolving immune cell proteomes to subcellular resolution

Immune activation triggers dramatic proteome remodelling. Using high sensitivity mass spectrometry we have mapped immune cell proteomes, providing novel insights into immune cell phenotypes and revealing the metabolic and protein synthesis machinery and environmental sensors that shape cell fate. Read more

MSc by Research: Molecular Analysis of Nuclear Bodies and RNP Trafficking Pathways in the Cell Nucleus

Many important processes within mammalian cells are compartmentalised within specific subcellular structures. In the cell nucleus, Nuclear Bodies (NBs), such as nucleoli, provide specialised compartments that are not surrounded by membranes, but still concentrate specific proteins and RNAs. Read more

MSc by Research: Regulation of Kinetochore function by PLK1

Accurate partition of the duplicated genome during cell division is crucial for cellular viability and organismal development. Chromosome mis-segregation is a major source of aneuploidy and it is a hallmark of cancer, while in oocytes represents the major source of miscarriages and genetic disease. Read more
