Welcome to WallTraC

The Plant Cell Wall Training Consortium

WallTraC is a Marie Curie Initial Training Network  (ITN) gathering nine leading researchers on plant cell walls from the private sector, universities and research centres and two associated partners .
WallTraC has two major interlinked strategic objectives:

  • To develop new molecular tools & techniques for the analysis of plant cell walls & their component polymers - mainly pectin and cellulose - with direct applicability to industrial end-users in the functional food ingredients & plant fibre sectors;
  • To provide high quality, intersectorial & trans-disciplinary training in plant cell wall analysis & complementary skills with the aim of enabling young scientists to respond to future demands in both academic and private sectors thereby securing the future EU expertise base.
