The Department's buildings are currently open for wet laboratory work only. We have carried out a comprehensive COVID-19 risk assessment process and have introduced a number of new measures to ensure the safety of our staff, including reduced building occupancy, strict social distancing, 'family'-based working, and increased cleaning and hygiene regimes. All staff who can work remotely will do so for the foreseeable future. Please continue to contact us by email until further notice.

Subcellular localisation of two of the 5' to 3' RNA exonucleases in live cell images of stationary phase trypanosomes. XRNA (green) degrades mRNAs in the cytoplasm and is concentrated in granules at the posterior pole. XRND (red) is localised to the nucleolus. DNA (blue) has been stained with H33342.
