Researchers in the Rose lab study the formation, function, and evolution of plant structural polymers, as well as associated extracellular processes. We 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.
