Genome assembly and transcriptomic analysis to elucidate the ability of Nasonovia ribisnigri to break host plant resistance (2024)
Journal Article

Aphid genomic resources enable the study of complex life history traits and provide information on vector biology, host adaption and speciation. The currant–lettuce aphid (Nasonovia ribisnigri (Hemiptera: Aphididae) (Mosley)) is a cosmopolitan pest o...

'Hypocrite!' Affective and argumentative engagement on Twitter, following the Christchurch terrorist attack (2024)
Journal Article

This article intervenes in debates about whether public-facing social media enable the rapid spread of hate speech, or whether these platforms can offer valuable opportunities to contest it. Advancing scholarship on ‘networked counter-publics’ and re... Read More about 'Hypocrite!' Affective and argumentative engagement on Twitter, following the Christchurch terrorist attack.

Latent gammaherpesvirus infection enhances type I IFN response and reduces virus spread in an influenza A virus co-infection model. (2024)
Journal Article

Infections with persistent or latent viruses alter host immune homeostasis and have potential to affect the outcome of concomitant acute viral infections such as influenza A virus (IAV). Gammaherpesviruses establish life-long infections and require a...

Optical Microscopy Using the Faraday Effect Reveals in Situ Magnetization Dynamics of Magnetic Nanoparticles in Biological Samples (2024)
Journal Article

The study of exogenous and endogenous nanoscale magnetic material in biology is important for developing biomedical nanotechnology as well as for understanding fundamental biological processes such as iron metabolism and biomineralization. Here, we e... Read More about Optical Microscopy Using the Faraday Effect Reveals in Situ Magnetization Dynamics of Magnetic Nanoparticles in Biological Samples.

Aedes aegypti gut transcriptomes respond differently to microbiome transplants from field‐caught or laboratory‐reared mosquitoes (2024)
Journal Article

The mosquito microbiome is critical for host development and plays a major role in many aspects of mosquito biology. While the microbiome is commonly dominated by a small number of genera, there is considerable variation in composition among mosquito...

The Colombo Twin and Singleton Study (COTASS): Piloting the Feasibility of Collecting Nutritional Data and Extension of the Sample to Include Children of Twins. (2024)
Journal Article

Nutrition and diet are key modifiable risk factors for the rising burden of non-communicable diseases like cardio-vascular diseases and diabetes in low- and middle- income countries (LMICs). The nutritional transition in dietary behaviours in LMICs h...

Frequency of Consumption of Food Groups and Cardio-Metabolic Risk Factors: A Genetically Informative Twin Study in Sri Lanka. (2023)
Journal Article

Low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) globally have undergone rapid urbanisation, and changes in demography and health behaviours. In Sri Lanka, cardio-vascular disease and diabetes are now leading causes of mortality. High prevalence of their ris...
