Novel combinations of agents targeting translation that synergistically inhibit fungal pathogens (2018)
Journal Article
Vallières, C., Raulo, R., Dickinson, M., & Avery, S. V. (2018). Novel combinations of agents targeting translation that synergistically inhibit fungal pathogens. Frontiers in Microbiology, 9, doi:10.3389/fmicb.2018.02355 . ISSN 1664-302X

A range of fungicides or antifungals are currently deployed to control fungi in agriculture or medicine, but resistance to current agents is growing so new approaches and molecular targets are urgently needed. Recently, different aminoglycoside antib... Read More

The VANDELS ESO public spectroscopic survey: Observations and first data release (2018)
Journal Article
Pentericci, L., McLure, R. J., Garilli, B., Cucciati, O., Franzetti, P., Iovino, A., …Zucca, E. (2018). The VANDELS ESO public spectroscopic survey: Observations and first data release. Astronomy and Astrophysics, 616, 1-15. doi:10.1051/0004-6361/201833047

This paper describes the observations and the first data release (DR1) of the ESO public spectroscopic survey “VANDELS, a deep VIMOS survey of the CANDELS CDFS and UDS fields”. The main targets of VANDELS are star-forming galaxies at redshift 2.4 < z... Read More

Complete sequence and genomic annotation of carrot torradovirus 1 (2017)
Journal Article
Rozado-Aguirre, Z., Adams, I., Fox, A., Dickinson, M., & Boonham, N. (in press). Complete sequence and genomic annotation of carrot torradovirus 1. Archives of Virology, doi:10.1007/s00705-017-3410-5. ISSN 0304-8608

Carrot torradovirus 1 (CaTV1) is a new member of the genus Torradovirus within the family Secoviridae. CaTV1 genome sequences were obtained from a previous next-generation sequencing (NGS) study and were compared to other members and tentative new me... Read More

The response of soil microbial diversity and abundance to long-term application of biosolids (2017)
Journal Article
Mossa, A., Dickinson, M. J., West, H. M., Young, S. D., & Crout, N. M. (2017). The response of soil microbial diversity and abundance to long-term application of biosolids. Environmental Pollution, 224, doi:10.1016/j.envpol.2017.02.056. ISSN 0269-7491

The disposal of biosolids poses a major environmental and economic problem. Agricultural use is generally regarded as the best means of disposal. However, its impact on soil ecosystems remains uncertain. Biosolids can improve soil properties by suppl... Read More

Detection and transmission of Carrot torrado virus, a novel putative member of the Torradovirus genus (2016)
Journal Article
Rozado-Aguirre, Z., Adams, I., Collins, L., Fox, A., Dickinson, M., & Boonham, N. (2016). Detection and transmission of Carrot torrado virus, a novel putative member of the Torradovirus genus. Journal of Virological Methods, 235, doi:10.1016/j.jviromet.2016.05.018. ISSN 0166-0934

A new Torradovirus tentatively named Carrot torrado virus (CaTV) was an incidental finding following a next generation sequencing study investigating internal vascular necrosis in carrot. The closest related viruses are Lettuce necrotic leaf curl vir... Read More

High speed solid rotor permanent magnet machines: concept and design
Journal Article
Arumugam, P., Xu, Z., La Rocca, A., Vakil, G., Dickinson, M., Amankwah, E. K., …Pickering, S. (in press). High speed solid rotor permanent magnet machines: concept and design. IEEE Transactions on Transportation Electrification, 2(3), doi:10.1109/TTE.2016.2592684. ISSN 2332-7782

This paper proposes a novel solid rotor topology for an Interior Permanent Magnet (IPM) machine, adopted in this case for an aircraft starter-generator design. The key challenge in the design is to satisfy two operating conditions which are: a high t... Read More
