Abiotic stress is a major limitation on agricultural productivity. Due to global climate change and rising temperatures, plants increasingly face the threat of heat stress, which has significant impacts on plant growth and crop yield.

Speaker: Ross Deans
Photosynthesis at the leaf level represents a finely balanced economic challenge to the plant: the beneficial uptake of CO2 through stomata for photosynthesis is unfortunately coupled to the unavoidable loss of typically 100-fold more water to the atmosphere.

This lecture series has 12 audio-lectures (slides with voice), each with 30 slides and each lasting 90 minutes.  Thus 18 hours in total.  The aim is to give the BIG PICTURE of the topic and hopefully also hint at open problems.  Each slide might summarize a paper, so technical detail is generally

Speaker: Dr Chris G Tate - Medical Research Council, Laboratory of Molecular Biology, Cambridge - Host Associate Professor Richard Callaghan
G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) activate intracellular signalling proteins (G proteins and arrestins) in response to extracellular signalling molecules. GPCRs are highly dynamic proteins, which rapidly interchange between different conformational states.
