Orchestrating cell separation in plants: What are the risks and benefits?
In this podcast, Professor Roberts from the School of Biosciences discusses his research into the mechanism responsible for regulating cell separation in plants. In particular how plants 'shed' parts of themselves such as leaves or fruit. Professor Roberts explores the potential application of his research, through prevention or encouraging of the 'shedding' process, agricultural harvests could potentially be increased or even synchronised. Professor Roberts also discusses the resistance faced
