Journal Article
Chapman, E. C., O’Dell, A. R., Meligi, N. M., Parsons, D. R., & Rotchell, J. M. (2017). Seasonal expression patterns of clock-associated genes in the blue mussel Mytilus edulis. Chronobiology International, 34(9), 1300-1314. doi:10.1080/07420528.2017.1363224

Environmental cues allow organisms to synchronise their internal biological rhythms with external environmental cycles. These rhythms are regulated on a molecular level by oscillating interactions between clock genes and their proteins. Light is a pa... Read More

Journal Article
Lerebours, A., Lerebours, A., Chapman, E. C., Rotchell, J. M., Heupel, M. R., & Sweet, M. J. (2016). Molecular changes in skin pigmented lesions of the coral trout Plectropomus leopardus. Marine environmental research, 120, (130-135). doi:10.1016/j.marenvres.2016.07.009. ISSN 0141-1136

© 2016 Elsevier Ltd A high prevalence of skin pigmented lesions of 15% was recently reported in coral trout Plectropomus leopardus, a commercially important marine fish, inhabiting the Great Barrier Reef. Herein, fish were sampled at two offshore sit... Read More

Effects of low seawater pH on the marine polychaete Platynereis dumerilii (2015)
Journal Article
Wäge, J., Hardege, J. D., Larsson, T. A., Simakov, O., Chapman, E. C., Arendt, D., & Rotchell, J. M. (2015). Effects of low seawater pH on the marine polychaete Platynereis dumerilii. Marine pollution bulletin, 95(1), 166-172. doi:10.1016/j.marpolbul.2015.04.027

An important priority for any organism is to maintain internal cellular homeostasis including acidbase balance. Yet, the molecular level impacts of changing environmental conditions, such as low pH, remain uncharacterised. Herein, we isolate partial... Read More
