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

This project involves 5 European groups and will start in May 2018 and run for three years

This project started in March 2017, and runs until February 2022.
