Charles Melnyk

We specialise in how plant development responds to abiotic and biotic stresses. Our lab is particularly interested in understanding how plants graft . For millennia, people have cut and joined

The Plant Catabolism Laboratory

We are interested in the mechanisms and functions of catabolic processes during development, aging and stress response at the molecular, cellular and organismal levels. Our experimental models span

Autophagy

Autophagy (“self-eating”) is a major catabolic process in eukaryotes that involves the sequestration of cytoplasmic contents into double membraned vesicles known as autophagosomes, which are then

Proteases

Proteases cleave polypeptide chains and, in this way, modulate activity of target proteins and downstream pathways. Our current efforts are to unravel structure-function relationships of metacaspases
