Joshua S Mylne The 43rd Lorne Conference on Protein Structure and Function 2018

Joshua S Mylne

I started my scientific career (PhD in Botany, UQ 2002) with plant genetics at the John Innes Centre (2001-2005), using molecular genetics to study proteins that accelerate flowering in response to prolonged cold (vernalization). In 2006 I moved to the IMB (UQ) where I held a QEII Fellowship (2008-2012) and was the inaugural John S. Mattick Fellow (2010-2012) and here I diversified into peptide chemistry and protein biochemistry. In 2013 I joined the faculty at The University of Western Australia and took up an ARC Future Fellowship in the School of Chemistry & Biochemistry and The ARC Centre of Excellence in Plant Energy Biology where my lab ( studies protein evolution and herbicides. Our special interest is the evolution of novel proteins inside other proteins, a process we term protein hijacking. I'm also fond of the model plant Arabidopsis thaliana and fine ales, have three wild sons and coach the giant-slaying Neddies Under 12s rugby team.
