Elastomeric micropillar arrays for the study of protrusive forces in hyphal invasion
(University of Canterbury. Biological SciencesUniversity of Canterbury. Electrical and Computer EngineeringUniversity of Canterbury. Biomolecular Interaction Centre, 2015)
Fungi and Oomycetes are microorganisms that can be pathogenic and grow invasively causing significant economic losses and diseases1. • These organisms grow by extending the cell at the tip. This involves turgor pressure, ...
Appearances can be deceptive: Revealing a hidden viral infection with deep sequencing in a plant quarantine context
(University of Canterbury. Biological SciencesUniversity of Canterbury. Biomolecular Interaction Centre, 2014)
Comprehensive inventories of plant viral diversity are essential for effective quarantine and sanitation efforts. The safety of regulated plant material exchanges presently relies heavily on techniques such as PCR or ...
Suggestions on how to apply international safety testing guidelines for genetically modified organisms
(Centre for Integrated Research in Biosafety (INBI)University of Canterbury. Biological Sciences, 2012)
Summary of recommendations Recommendation 1: The regulatory review process should begin with the participation of all stakeholders, from industry (not just the applicant’s industry), civil society and government and seek ...
Replicating Arabidopsis Model Leaf Surfaces for Phyllosphere Microbiology
Artificial surfaces are commonly used in place of leaves in phyllosphere microbiology to study microbial behaviour on plant leaf surfaces. Studies looking into individual environmental factors influencing microorganisms ...
Comparison of Replica Leaf Surface Materials for Phyllosphere Microbiology
Artificial surfaces are routinely used instead of leaves to enable a reductionist approach in phyllosphere microbiology, the study of microorganisms residing on plant leaf surfaces. For instance, flat surfaces such as ...
