The Edinburgh Cell Wall Group is headed by Prof. Stephen Fry, and studies various aspects of plant primary cell wall. This website contains information about the diverse range of research done in the group, services that we can offer to other groups (like sugar analyses or XET-action assays), and of course the people that work in the lab.
