Infrakingdom Alveolata: Searching For A Defining Structural Feature

Grant number: DP0664097

Abstract

This project will establish the first molecular nexus between a cellular structure currently used to define an Infrakingdom of life. It will aid in the higher order systematics of our microscopic diversity and allow us to interpret how important parasites learned to penetrate host cells to establish infection. We will train excellent graduate and Honours students in cellular and molecular biology.
