Brief description Plant cells are the factories that provide the food we eat, the air we breath, play a critical role in a balanced environment and provide energy in a sustainable manner. The varied use of plants and plant products is underpinned by an understanding of biochemistry that takes place in plant cells. This proposal is aimed at understanding how some proteins function in more than one location in the multi-compartmentalised plant cell biochemical factory. The knowledge that is generated from this research can be used to underpin innovative use of plants within Australia's plant based industries. Furthermore it provides a rich intellectual training environment for students and postdoctoral researchers.
