Well, last week we passed a significant milestone with the listing of its half-millionth antibody. And this week we are launching a Facebook page.  Read more

Protocols relating to the Structure and Composition of Plant Cell Walls

People have already exploited the physical properties of plant cell walls in, for example, the production of paper, textiles and building materials. In the future it may be possible to engineer plants to produce other environmentally friendly / biocompatible materials with different performance characteristics.  Read more
