The CCRC Plant Cell Wall Group will have a major role in the recently formed BioEnergy Science Center (BESC)

BESC selected by The US Department of Energy to be one of three new Bioenergy Research Centers. Link

A brochure describing upcoming research opportunities at CCRC/BESC is available here


The CCRC plant cell wall group is comprised of six independently funded research teams with expertise in polysaccharide chemistry and biochemistry, cellular and molecular biology.

The goal of our research is to determine the role of the cell wall in plant growth and development.
