- ... Among the large diversity of plant species in Australia are many which produce potentially the longest-living seeds in the world. Many others have much shorter storage potentials, which limits the usefulness of seed collections for germ-plasm conservation and breeding. Work at the NSW Seedbank is exploring the repro¬ductive fitness, germination and storage potential of many taxa of conservation an ...

- ... Chemokines play a key role in initiating the innate and subsequently adaptive immune response by recruiting immune cells to the site of an infection. Monocytes/macrophages (MØ) are part of the first line of defence against invading pathogens, and have been shown to release a variety of chemokines in response to infection. Here, we reveal the early transcriptional response of MØ to infection with c ...
