Article
Full-text available
Organisms are commonly infected by a diverse array of pathogens and mount functionally distinct responses to each of these varied immune challenges. Host immune responses are characterized by the induction of gene expression, however, the extent to which expression changes are shared among responses to distinct pathogens is largely unknown. To exam...
Article
Full-text available
Significance The ability of immune cells to distinguish self tissue from nonself pathogens is a key characteristic of immunity, allowing responses to be targeted against invading pathogens while protecting against self-directed immune damage. The recognition of nonself by innate immune cells has been extensively characterized, but the mechanisms th...

Background: Organisms are commonly infected by a diverse array of pathogen types including bacteria, fungi, viruses, and parasites, and mount functionally distinct responses to each of these varied immune challenges. Host immune responses are characterized by the induction of gene expression in response to infection. However, the extent to which ex...

Individuals who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and otherwise nonstraight and/or non-cisgender (LGBTQ+) have often not felt welcome or represented in the biology community. Additionally, biology can present unique challenges for LGBTQ+ students because of the relationship between certain biology topics and their LGBTQ+ ident...
Article
Hymenopteran parasitoid wasps are a diverse collection of species that infect arthropod hosts and use factors found in their venoms to manipulate host immune responses, physiology, and behaviour. Whole parasitoid venoms have been profiled using proteomic approaches, and here we present a bioinformatic characterization of the venom protein content f...
