Buddisodes

60-min discussions about immunology research with our hosts. From Buddisode 15 onwards, we started inviting authors to talk about their work.

In the 2nd part of the Origin of Eukaryotes series, Dara and Jatin sit down with Dr. Dylan G Ryan from University of Cambridge (formerly at Trinity College Dublin) to discuss his 2020 perspective article about the role of TCA cycle in Eukaryogenesis.
