What are the Big Open Questions in Plant Cell Biology?

/
As scientists, we are at least as excited about the open questions—the things we don’t know—as the discoveries. Science happens in the interface between known and unknown. In the review article Fifteen compelling open questions in plant cell biology, published in The Plant Cell Focus Issue on Plant…
