Journal Article
Wadhawan, J. D., Kocsis, D., Meyer, C., Ward, R., Thompson, M., Prior, T. J., …Lawrence, N. (2023). Empowering clean water whilst safeguarding water distribution pipeline integrity: Towards manganese- and iron-free lime hydrate for water treatment. Environmental Science: Water Research & Technology, https://doi.org/10.1039/d2ew00109h

Hydrated limes are amongst the most economically valuable alkalis used by the water industry for the treatment of potable water. They are typically manufactured from the thermal decomposition of high purity limestones. However, the latter contain bot...

Two closely related ureotelic fish species of the genus Alcolapia express different levels of ammonium transporters in gills (2022)
Journal Article
White, L. J., Rose, M., Lawson, M., Joyce, D., Smith, A. M., Thomas, G. H., …Pownall, M. E. (2022). Two closely related ureotelic fish species of the genus Alcolapia express different levels of ammonium transporters in gills. Biology Open, 11(11), Article bio059575. https://doi.org/10.1242/bio.059575

Most fish excrete their nitrogenous waste across the gills as ammonia through the activity of the Rhesus glycoprotein ammonium transporters. In contrast, fish of the subgenus Alcolapia (Oreochromis) are the only vertebrates that survive the extreme c...

Sex and gametogenesis stage are strong drivers of gene expression in Mytilus edulis exposed to environmentally relevant plasticiser levels and pH 7.7 (2022)
Journal Article
Mincarelli, L., Chapman, E. C., Rotchell, J. M., Turner, A., & Wollenberg Valero, K. C. (in press). Sex and gametogenesis stage are strong drivers of gene expression in Mytilus edulis exposed to environmentally relevant plasticiser levels and pH 7.7. Environmental science and pollution research, https://doi.org/10.1007/s11356-022-23801-3

Plastic pollution and changes in oceanic pH are both pressing environmental issues. Little emphasis, however, has been placed on the influence of sex and gametogenesis stage when investigating the effects of such stressors. Here, we examined histolog...

Oca2 targeting using CRISPR/Cas9 in the Malawi cichlid Astatotilapia calliptera (2022)
Journal Article
Clark, B., Elkin, J., Marconi, A., Turner, G. F., Smith, A. M., Joyce, D., …Santos, M. E. (2022). Oca2 targeting using CRISPR/Cas9 in the Malawi cichlid Astatotilapia calliptera. Royal Society Open Science, 9(4), Article 220077. https://doi.org/10.1098/rsos.220077

Identifying genetic loci underlying trait variation provides insights into the mechanisms of diversification, but demonstrating causality and characterizing the role of genetic loci requires testing candidate gene function, often in non-model species...
