SEB Brighton 2016 session report: The plant endoplasmic reticulum: A dynamic multitasking organelle
Autumn 2016
31 October 2016

Researchers from Oxford Brookes University and the University of Warwick teamed up to organise a 2-day session on the plant endoplasmic reticulum (ER). The ER is a network-forming organelle present in all cells from plants to humans and plays a vital role in protein production, protein folding, and quality control. As such, the plant ER is responsible for the production and storage of a great proportion of our edible proteins and lipids.
