    The genes coding for the core metabolic enzymes of the photorespiratory pathway that allows plants with C3-type photosynthesis to survive in an oxygen-rich atmosphere, have been largely discovered in genetic screens aimed ...
  • Taerum, Stephen J.; Duong, Tuan A.; De Beer, Z. Wilhelm; Gillette, Nancy; Sun, Jiang-Hua; Owen, Donald R.; Wingfield, Michael J. (Public Library of Science, 2013-10-18)
    Changes in symbiont assemblages can affect the success and impact of invasive species, and may provide knowledge regarding the invasion histories of their vectors. Bark beetle symbioses are ideal systems to study changes ...
  • Hoareau, Thierry B. (Oxford University Press, 2016-05)
    The molecular clock hypothesis is fundamental in evolutionary biology as by assuming constancy of the molecular rate it provides a timeframe for evolution. However, increasing evidence shows time dependence of inferred ...
  • Mahesh, K.P. (Health and Medical Publishing Group, 2015-05)
    Ownership with regard to human biological material (HBM) is addressed to some extent within South African law, specifically in chapter eight of the National Health Act (NHA) and its associated regulations. However, members ...
  • Mertens, Jasmin; Aliyu, Habibu; Cowan, Don A. (American Society for Microbiology, 2018-05)
    The LEA family is composed of a diverse collection of multi-domain and multi-functional proteins, found in all three Domains of the Tree of Life, but particularly common in plants. Most members of the family are known to ...
  • Maswanganye, Kgaogelo Amanda; Cunningham, Michael J.; Bennett, Nigel C., 1961-; Chimimba, Christian Timothy; Bloomer, Paulette (Elsevier, 2017-09)
    Understanding the role of geography and climatic cycles in determining patterns of biodiversity is important in comparative and evolutionary biology and conservation. We studied the phylogeographic pattern and historical ...
  • Lombard, Lorenzo; Van der Merwe, Nicolaas Albertus (Albie); Groenewald, Johannes Z.; Crous, Pedro W. (Firenze University Press, 2014-12)
    Genera with cylindrocarpon-like asexual morphs are important pathogens of various herbaceous and woody plant hosts globally. Recent multi-gene studies of this generic complex indicated that the genus Ilyonectria is ...
  • Oberholster, Paul Johan; Botha, Anna-Maria; Myburgh, Jan G. (Academic Journals, 2009-11-02)
    Cyanobacterial blooms have become an increasing problem in South African freshwater bodies. Since certain species of cyanobacteria are well-known for biosynthesis of potent hepatic and neurotoxins, such blooms can pose a ...
