Plant Proteolyis and Signalling

Welcome to the lab website of Professor Daniel Gibbs

We investigate how plants use protein degradation as a mechanism for regulating cellular processes and sensing diverse signals. We are particularly interested in hypoxia signalling and flooding stress, protein acetylation, and co-translational protein quality control.

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

We are currently funded by a BBSRC Responsive mode grant (2022-2024):

A Molecular Framework for Environment Responsive Chromatin Modification in Plants

We are pleased to be partners in the recently awarded ERA-CAPS third call project:
