Moving the research forward: The best of British biology using the tractable model system Dictyostelium discoideum

Abstract:

The social amoeba Dictyostelium discoideum provides an excellent model for research across a broad range of disciplines within biology. The organism diverged from the plant, yeast, fungi and animal kingdoms around 1 billion years ago but retains common aspects found in these kingdoms.
