Science communication

Chromosome mosaic illustrating replication origins (by Dr Catarina Gadelha from the University of Nottingham).

Here are examples of scientific writing, from group members, aimed at a general audience:

  1. How to replicate a genome (2018), published in Phenotype Journal.
  2. How to replicate a genome (2015), published in Fusion Magazine.
  3. Selfish gene solves DNA replication puzzle (2013), published in The Conversation to accompany our Nature paper.
