The vacuole is one of the hallmarks of the plant cell. Growth, expansion and morphogenesis of every cell within the plant is driven by the vacuole. Furthermore, specialised protein storage vacuoles present within seed cells contribute a very large proportion of animal dietary proteins. Therefore, our understanding of this organelle is extremely important from both a fundamental discovery and applied science perspective. Over the past decade, the application of cell biology to studying the vacuole during growth and development has greatly improved our understanding of its biogenesis, regulation and expansion. We look forward to the community coming together at this session and discussing the latest developments in these exciting areas.
