Founding Member



Location: University of Warwick
Work: My research interests span evolutionary biology, plant molecular systematics, (palaeo)ethnobotany, phylogeography and anthropology. I am particularly interested in using genetic data to understand the origins, domestication and dispersal of crop plants. This includes an emphasis on how plants and human history have influenced each other. I am currently a Research Fellow in the Allaby Research Group in the School of Life Sciences at the University of Warwick.

Dear Andrew,I have created a group for "Ecology communication" inside the Research Cooperative. If you would like to look (and join?), please go here:https://researchcooperative.org/group/ecologycommunicationThanks, Peter

Thanks. I am still applying for federal & other jobs and am not in a part of the U.S. with many science jobs, so I am having a harder time getting more research experience.Kristina Turner, M.S.

I am looking for more people involved with plant antimicrobial research. I conducted Kirby-Bauer antibiotic susceptibility testing with the cotton terpenoid gossypol on Staphylococcus aureus SH1000 and COL and got minimal bactericidal concentrations of 250 ug/mL gossypol/acetic acid. Gossypol is antibacterial, antifungal, antimalarial, antiviral, anti-inflammatory, and is currently in phase 1 clinical trials as Ascenta's lead cancer drug AT-101 (gossypol/acetic acid), since it triggers apoptosis of tumor cells expressing BCL-2 and BCL-XL markers. I conducted a BLAST protein similarity search of the NCBI database for related sequences to gossypol's synthase and a MAFFT and CLUSTALW of sequences with significant homology (closest relation to a chemical in grapes, probably resvertrol).
