Membrane signaling and polyphosphate metabolism

We combine structural biology with plant genetics to understand how plants sense hormone signals at membranes to coordinate growth and development of tissues and organs. A second line of research aims at addressing the synthesis, breakdown and cellular functions of inorganic polyphosphate in plants, a poorly characterized energy metabolite.
