Research: Dynamics of Secretory Membrane Traffic in Plant Cells
The Brandizzi laboratory started at the PRL in 2006. Research in our laboratory focuses on the investigation of the mechanisms for establishment and maintenance of organelles of the secretory pathway in growth and stress in plants.We couple functional genomics and advanced live-cell imaging to investigate organelle biology and the role of endomembranes in the biosynthesis of biofuels precursors, photosynthesis, stress biology on Earth and in space.
