    http://www.findaphd.com/search/ProjectDetails.aspx?PJID=15298&LID=1093 Metabolic cell biology: CTP synthase, Cytoophidia, Cancer biology and CRISPR Our lab has discovered that CTP synthase is compartmentalised in an enigmatic organelle, the cytoophidium (1-6). Moreover, cytoophidia are detectable in bacteria, yeast and mammals (review see 7). Compartmentation is essential for the localisation of biological processes within a...

    Check our newest paper on Plos Genetics on the development of joints. We found that the bHLH transcription factor dysfusion is a target gene of Notch and controls two important morphogenetic events that direct tarsal joint development such as programed cell death and epithelial cell shape.   http://www.plosgenetics.org/article/info%3Adoi%2F10.1371%2Fjournal.pgen.1004621

    Comment
    Debunked the old spreading and silencing models for Groucho-mediated repression - and discovered a few other things along the way.  It was an excellent and hugely enjoyable 3-way collaboration with Aamna and Gene. Also, a good experience dealing with PLOS Genetics. Now to write an epic novel about the backstory to getting...
