A new theory on collective cell migration has been published in Nature Communications this week. This collaborative work from Rastko Sknepnek, a Senior Lecturer in Physics based in Life Sciences and Science and Engineering in the University, Silke Henkes from the University of Bristol and Eric Bertin from Universite Grenoble Alpes provides new details on this process which is important in embryonic development, organ regeneration and wound healing.
An interdisciplinary study investigating cell membrane dynamics has been published in Science Advances. The multi-institute collaboration involved Rastko Sknepnek, a Senior Lecturer in Physics based in Life Sciences and Science and Engineering in the University and was led by Satyajit Mayor and Madan Rao, both from the National Centre for Biological Sciences in Bangalore, India.

Researchers in the School of Life Sciences at the University of Dundee have helped to uncover and understand the genome of a vitally important orphan crop, called water yam.
A study published this week in the journal eLife, by a team at University of Dundee's School of Life Sciences uses a new approach to reveal the complexity and modifications of RNA that are essential to genetic control. They passed RNA through pores developed by Oxford Nanopore Technology to reveal directly the sequence of 1000s of RNA molecules.
Review of the Year 2019 took place today with the Dean, Julian Blow sharing the highlights of activity within the School from 2019. The presentation closed with the annual School prizes presentation. Here are the winners:
