    • Genomic and phenotypic variation in epidemic-spanning Salmonella enterica serovar Enteritidis isolates 

      Betancor, Laura; Yim, Lucia; Fookes, Maria; Martinez, Araci; Thomson, Nicholas R.; Ivens, Alasdair; Peters, Sarah E. et al. (2009-11-18)
      Abstract Background Salmonella enterica serovar Enteritidis (S. Enteritidis) has caused major epidemics of gastrointestinal infection in many different countries. In this study we investigate genome divergence and pathogenic ...
    • Targets downstream of Cdk8 in Dictyostelium development 

      Greene, David M.; Bloomfield, Gareth; Skelton, Jason; Ivens, Alasdair; Pears, Catherine J. (2011-01-21)
      Abstract Background Cdk8 is a component of the mediator complex which facilitates transcription by RNA polymerase II and has been shown to play an important role in development of Dictyostelium discoideum. This eukaryote ...
    • Widespread duplications in the genomes of laboratory stocks of Dictyostelium discoideum 

      Bloomfield, Gareth; Tanaka, Yoshimasa; Skelton, Jason; Ivens, Alasdair; Kay, Robert R. (2008-04-22)
      Abstract Background Duplications of stretches of the genome are an important source of individual genetic variation, but their unrecognized presence in laboratory organisms would be a confounding variable for genetic ...
