Plant proteolysis and signalling laboratory

Welcome to the lab website of Dr. Daniel Gibbs at the University of Birmingham
  


We investigate how plants sense and respond to diverse internal and external signals, with a particular focus on the role of targeted protein degradation as a mechanism for achieving this.

The general aim of our work is to increase our understanding of how plants develop and respond to the environment, and to identify promising targets that can be manipulated in agriculturally important crops to improve growth, productivity and stress tolerance.


We have recently been awarded a five year ERC-STG grant:


"GasPlaNt: Oxygen and nitric oxide regulated chromatin modification via a targeted protein degradation mechanism".

This project is due to start in March 2017
