How do plants react to environmental stressors such as heat or drought that climate change has brought about? Cells can reduce stress by degrading certain proteins and adapting the production of new proteins to changing environmental conditions. The balance between the synthesis, folding, modification and controlled degradation of proteins, known as proteostasis, will be the focus of a University of Freiburg conference at which around 80 plant researchers from around the globe will meet.
