ProPlantStress will employ these approaches, which I co-developed during my postdoctoral research, to two linked abiotic and biotic stress conditions: i) Time-resolved mapping of chloroplast protein processing induced by high intensity light will reveal novel mechanisms of retrograde signal transduction, stress response and acclimation; ii) Profiling of protein processing triggered by pathogen recognition, combined with substrate identification for selected host and bacterial pathogen effector proteases will identify proteins with novel functions in plant immune responses and systemic signaling.
