Research in plant science is essential if we are to meet the challenge of feeding the growing global population in a period of climate change. Our collaborations with plant scientists range from studies of molecular processes within cells to the interactions between crops, pathogens and their environment. Alongside the need to make optimal use of traditional types of data, we must develop and apply new approaches to make efficient use of the increasingly large volumes of molecular marker, transcriptomic, metabolomic and proteomic data that are being generated by new technologies.
Here we present some examples of work under this application area. Further details can be obtained from the lead contact.
