Plants sustain all life on earth. It's a big a job and one that just keeps getting bigger.  For example, when Professor Steven Smith was born, there were 2.6 billion people in the world.  Today there are more than 7 billion people, and we all rely on plants for our well-being.

Plant science: Discovering the secrets to sustaining life on earth

'Our population is growing at an alarming rate and we need to work out how to feed ourselves into the future. Each piece of ground that now feeds 3 people will need to feed 5 in the future. So how do we make that happen?  We can't create more land, or nutrients, or water. We have to look at ways to make crops more productive with the resources that we've got' said Professor Smith. 

'This is possibly humanity's greatest challenge. After oxygen and water, there is nothing more fundamental to life on earth than food, and our food comes from plants.' 

Professor Smith has dedicated his career to finding out how plants grow. 

'If we can understand the fundamentals of how plants grow and then apply that knowledge to increasing crop yields, we will make a significant contribution to the future of humanity. That's pretty satisfying.'

Professor Smith has always been interested in the living world.  He wanted to know how it worked and plants became his fascination. 

'I was lucky enough to be a researcher at the beginning of the molecular biology revolution in the 1980's.  We were doing things that hadn't been done before,' said Professor Smith. 

'I clearly remember the day when, after two years of work as a PhD student, I achieved something that had never been done before.  I had cloned a gene. The moment when I realized it had worked was brilliant.

'There are still groundbreaking discoveries to be made in areas that are strategically important. 

'Ten years ago I was living in the UK and my application for a Fellowship in Australia was granted.  The timing coincided with an incredible discovery by a PhD student, who found that a chemical in bushfire smoke leads to seed germination. Those events were life changing for me.

'They led to my current research on how plant hormones regulate plant growth. Hormones could potentially be manipulated to increase crop production and help us feed the world.'

Professor Smith's research is also helping to solve problems closer to home. 

'I'm aiming to bring together a team of researchers in seed biology at UTAS.  This team could help industry to improve seed production in Tasmania.'

Professor Smith's hopes that this work could have significant economic benefits for the state.

'Tasmania is a great place to bring together a team like this. Tasmania's incredible environment draws plant scientists like a moth to light. 

 'I want to create a critical mass of talented individuals who can innovate and increase the momentum in this important field of research.  If we could discover a novel hormone that unlocks the secret to plant growth, it could be a game-changer' said Professor Smith.

Steve is a Professor of Plant Genetics and Biochemistry. His research is concerned with how plants grow, which has wide implications from ecology to food production. As a PhD student he was first to clone a gene required for carbon dioxide fixation by plants and he later discovered new pathways of starch and fat metabolism. He later identified karrikins, a family of chemicals produced by bushfires which stimulate seed germination. His research now focuses on the discovery and action of hormones which control plant growth. He aims to use this knowledge for the improvement of seed production in cereals and legumes.

Research Themes

Steve's research aligns with the University's research theme of Environment, Resources and Sustainability. His research interests include understanding the factors affecting plant growth, specifically identifying novel signalling systems involving particular genes, proteins and hormones that control plant physiology, growth and development. Steve was the first person to successfully isolate the DNA sequence of a plant enzyme, and so was at the forefront of the plant molecular biology revolution. 

As recipient of a Visiting Professorship for Senior International Scientists at the Chinese Academy of Sciences, Steve works closely with rice geneticists in Beijing to investigate genes with potential to improve rice production and yields. He has a record of highly innovative pioneering research in this field. His recent research includes the discovery of the function of 'karrikins', a new family of chemicals produced by bushfires, which stimulate seed germination. Steve's work in China and at the University of Tasmania is focused on the molecular role of plant compounds known as strigolactones (sometimes known as 'witch hormones'), a type of hormone that controls the architecture of the roots and shoots of plants. The goal of Steve's research group is to discover new underlying mechanisms that govern plant growth which in turn influences productivity in both natural ecosystems and agriculture.

Description
This proposal seeks support for an advanced, multi-purpose mass spectrometry platform for high-throughput and targeted biomolecular analysis, including proteomics and metabolomics. The intended purpose of the proposed infrastructure is to provide a centralised state-of-the-art facility that supports internationally competitive research programs in plant science, agricultural research, food safety, animal and human health research and separation science at the University of Tasmania (UTAS) and within the broader Tasmanian scientific community. Theanticipated benefit is a greatly enhanced capacity for leading edge research of national significance that alignswith the UTAS strategic research plan and national priorities.
