PROJECT SPOTLIGHT

Linking intracellular communication to whole-plant stress responses

This is a major area in our lab and connects to other projects as well.  Projects range from chemical genetics screens for targeted manipulation of chloroplast signals, site-directed mutagenesis of key cellular signalling proteins through to unravelling the dynamics of RNA synthesis and decay (see below), guard cell signalling and protein-metabolite interactions.

This project is open to Honours and PhD students
