About the Speaker

University: Oklahoma State University

Research Interests: Dr. Schoenknecht’s group studies the physiology and evolution of plant membrane transport proteins. Ongoing research projects are:

  • Annotation and analysis of the genome of the thermoacidophilic red alga Galdieria sulphuraria. The analysis of the Galdieria genome has been published in Science.
  • The molecular mechanisms of volatage-dependent gating of the vacuolar cation channel TPC1.
  • Recording and modelling of pH homeostasis in plant root cells.
