I don't know if it has to be something specific to plants- what areas are being neglected?
I guess you could think about things like photoreactions or root systems but I'm
not really sure what they hope to address that isn't being attacked in academic or
I was looking for an excuse to make a cavity database but not sure how it would
apply to this opportunity. That is, map out the shape and gross chemical environment
inside cavities from a database of pdb files and put them into a new database but I never checked
to see what is available etc.
