Developing Large-Scale Resources for Plant Functional Genomics

Ronan O’Malley has been working to develop large-scale mutant screening collections to identify causal genes within GWAS loci. His final goal is to integrate cistrome, epicistrome, genetic, and natural variant information to understand and ultimately predict how genome and epigenome sequence determines phenotypic outcomes. He spoke to us about his thoughts on plant genomics, bioinformatics and building large-scale resources for functional genomics.

An Instagram View of the Nanoworld

Biological nanomachines coordinate the life-sustaining actions of all human cells. Tissue and organ growth, cell maintenance and death – these processes are each controlled by exquisite systems of moving parts, invisible to the human eye. How do these tiny machines form and operate in complex environments? This is the question that fuels my intellectual curiosity.

Effective communication & management of test results

The World Alliance for Patient Safety has identified poor test result management as a high priority patient safety area. Evidence-based reviews have shown that pathology and imaging test results fail to be followed up in 20% to 62% of inpatients, and in up to 75% of patients treated in an emergency department [1]. Poor test result follow-up can have major consequences for quality of care, including missed diagnoses and sub-optimal patient outcomes.
