Light-regulated TurboID, or LOV-Turbo, is a feat of engineered allostery, created by Songyi Lee and Joleen Cheah via structure-guided design, then optimized by yeast display directed evolution. Activity is nearly undetectable in the dark state, but biorxiv.org/cgi/content/sh……
Université libre de Bruxelles Here are the promised job offers for a PhD student and a postdoc to join our lab in Brussels in 2023: euraxess.ec.europa.eu/jobs/48919 (PhD student, fellowship of ~€2300/month)

Bicarbonate transport: which compounds can transport this anion, how to test for this, or why that's interesting? Read our review with Luis Martínez-Crespo that has just come out in ChemPlusChem: onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/cp…
Today, we’re introducing a new model that eliminates accept/reject decisions.
By publishing every paper with eLife reviews as a Reviewed Preprint, we plan to restore autonomy to authors, ensuring that they will be judged by what, not where, they publish. elifesciences.org/inside-elife/5…
The Labs first diatom paper where we have developed a method to scarlessly insert GFP into the genome to tag proteins whilst maintaining native regulation. Enabled by a rapid Golden Gate episome delivery framework. biorxiv.org/content/10.110… Great work Onyou Nam and Irina.Molecular Life of Diatoms
Come join us!!🤗
Our lab is teaming up with Maria Hondele for an Swiss Nanoscience Institute (SNI) PhD👩🔬. You would combine light microscopy🔬, biophysics🧪, and #cryoET ❄️ to explore the structure and dynamics of phase-separated compartments that perform #RNA maturation 🧬 and #CO2 fixation 🌱🌍
Our Perspectives article is just out in Science!

Very excited to be part of this project exploring membrane repair in diverse organisms. Its been a huge effort from Gavin H Thomas and the team but now the real fun begins
Back in Biology at York after a brilliant trip to #CCM10 in Princeton hosted by Martin Jonikas. Thank you for an amazing meeting, I am truly inspired!
Thank you to Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research and Algae-UK for the funding support. Now we look forward to #CCM11 in York Luke Mackinder McCormick Lab
Thanks for an awesome conference Martin Jonikas. So many awesome talks! It was great to see the power of using carboxysomes and pyrenoids for understanding how #LLPS can impact global carbon cycling! No Rubisco LLPS = no carbon fixation = cell death Oliver Mueller-Cajar
Looking forward to hosting CCM10 in Princeton next week, July 6-8!
Abstracts are posted! ccm10.princeton.edu/program
If you can't travel, consider attending virtually!
