Project: Evolution and dynamics of collenchymatous cell walls: a structural-functional approach
- project duration
- 01-OCT-11 – 30-SEP-14
- The specialised properties of plant tissues result mainly from the combination of polymers within their cell walls. Detailed characterisation of cell walls is needed to generate understanding into how cell wall architecture results in specialized properties. This project aims to gain insight into structural-functional relationships of collenchymatous cell walls by studying their evolution, cell wall composition, dynamics and biomechanical properties.
