100 Questions for Plant Science Research
What are the most important questions in plant science that can be
addressed by the current generation of researchers?
We are collecting suggestions. An expert panel will condense these to a
final list of 100 questions for publication in a peer reviewed journal.
Please go to:

Questions are credited or you can choose to be anonymous. We look forward
to seeing your suggestions.
With very best wishes,
Ruth Bastow, Keith Edwards, and Claire Grierson
Submitted Questions include:
"How can global yields of stable food crops be substantially increased at
the same time as non-renewable inputs and greenhouse gas emissions are
"What controls/regulates the total mitochondrial number/mass in a plant
cell during cellular differentiation and development?"
"What are the best ways to convince school and university students that
plant science is exciting?"
"Is bio-ethanol from plants actually a sustainable agricultural practice?"
"How can we use our knowledge of plants to design efficient solar energy
"How do plants integrate different types of information to make a
"How can we translate molecular systems biology into food security?"
