Prof. Jocelyn Rose
Date & Location: November 20, 2017, at 4p; Room 1200 Molecular Plant Sciences Building
Subject: Cell Cuticle and Cell Wall Architecture and Function, especially in Fruit Development
About the Speaker
University: Cornell University
Research Interests: Researchers in the Rose lab study the formation, function, and evolution of plant structural polymers, as well as associated extracellular processes. They use a broad range of approaches, technologies and experimental systems, from algae to tomato fruit, to investigate how cell wall polysaccharides, hydrophobic cuticles (plant ‘skins’) and secreted proteins and metabolites influence plant development and environmental responses.
