3 February 2015 – Interdisciplinary and inter-node publication
Accepted in next to no time – CNBP scores our first internode and interdisciplinary Embryo publication
We have just submitted this paper a few days ago and the editor liked it so much that it was immediately accepted! The paper cited below is a result of joint work between Dr Mel McDowall and A/Prof Jeremy Thompson with other embryology co-authors, Prof Andrew Abell and PhD Student Malcolm Purdy (Chemistry Adelaide node of CNBP), and Prof Ewa Goldys (Physics, MQ node of CNBP). Andrew provided unique reagents and Ewa introduced quantitative analysis of the images. The images are also lovely, and Mel made a nice desktop background which we will submit for the journal cover.
This event demonstrates our collective power when we apply our diverse disciplines to a single CNBP biological challenge.
