Description

Learning to Adapt:  The Illuminated Plant Cell

The earth is home to animals and plants. Everyday both kinds of organisms are subjected to the same environmental stresses. Whereas animals are able to move away to less stressful locations plants are ‘rooted’ and have to deal with the stress as and when it occurs. Nonetheless, it is clear that despite their inability to move, plants leave the animals far behind when it comes to survival. Recent advances in Molecular-Cell Biology and the imaging of living cells through the use of diverse, colourful, fluorescent protein tags have started providing fresh insights into the internal workings of plant cells. The lecture will present succinct examples of how fluorescent proteins obtained from diverse marine organisms have been used to increase our understanding of plants specifically and of living organisms in general.
