No, not yet another dodgy titled paper with an acronym of QconCATnip! This is a collaboration with colleagues in Iwate University, showing that cats anoint themselves with catnip to repel mosquitoes. [here]
We are working hard to support open access and open data initiatives, and deposit raw data in [PRIDE]. You can find our submitted datasets elsewhere on the ProteomeExchange site [HERE]. If you want to see why making data available is important, look [here] and [here], in that order.
There may be postdoc and PhD student opportunities with Claire and Ed. Please make direct contact with them for general enquiries.
At the end of each year we produce a poster that captures our research outputs for the year, and also collates all of our main events, outreach, STEM activities etc. If you’d like to see these posters, then look for [EVENTS 2018] and [PUBS 2018] (PDF files). You can find our papers here (main menu, Papers) and pick up news information here.
We’ve prepared a full sized poster that covers the work we published:    . We also publish an annual summary of great events. [EVENTS 2015] [EVENTS 2016] [EVENTS 2017][EVENTS 2018][EVENTS 2019]. The 2020 posters will appear here at the end of the year.
