Storability and Brewing Quality of Corn Grits: Impacts of Storage Temperature, Particle Size and Key Compositional Factors (2024)
Journal Article

Across international brewing operations corn grits from different suppliers vary substantially in terms of their physical properties and chemical composition. Present research aimed to highlight the key factors determining the brewing quality of stor...

The Potential of Plant-Produced Virus-like Particle Vaccines for African Horse Sickness and Other Equine Orbiviruses (2024)
Journal Article

African horse sickness is a devastating viral disease of equids. It is transmitted by biting midges of the genus Culicoides with mortalities reaching over 90% in naïve horses. It is endemic to sub-Saharan Africa and is seasonally endemic in many part...

Integrating cryo-OrbiSIMS with computational modelling and metadynamics simulations enhances RNA structure prediction at atomic resolution (2024)
Journal Article

The 3D architecture of RNAs governs their molecular interactions, chemical reactions, and biological functions. However, a large number of RNAs and their protein complexes remain poorly understood due to the limitations of conventional structural bio...

Optimisation of Saccharomyces cerevisiae BRYC 501 ascospore formation and recovery for heat inactivation experiments (2024)
Journal Article

Why was the work done: Ascospores from Saccharomyces cerevisiae BRYC 501 are useful biological indicators for validating the pasteurisation of beer. Ascospores are formed by yeast in response to low nutrient conditions and are characterised by greate...

Open and closed conformations of a sub-80 kDa Chagas vaccine candidate defined by a cryo-EM led integrative approach (2024)
Working Paper

Chagas disease, caused by the protozoan parasite Trypanosoma cruzi, remains a significant global public health concern. It affects an estimated eight million individuals worldwide, with the majority remaining undiagnosed. Despite its profound health...

The need for One Health systems-thinking approaches to understand multiscale dissemination of antimicrobial resistance (2024)
Journal Article

Although the effects of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) are most obvious at clinical treatment failure, AMR evolution, transmission, and dispersal happen largely in environmental settings, for example within farms, waterways, livestock, and wildlife....

The long and short of it: benchmarking viromics using Illumina, Nanopore and PacBio sequencing technologies (2024)
Journal Article

Viral metagenomics has fuelled a rapid change in our understanding of global viral diversity and ecology. Long-read sequencing and hybrid assembly approaches that combine long- and short-read technologies are now being widely implemented in bacterial...
