Summary

Dr Harvey Millar obtained his PhD from the Division of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at the Australian National University. His work investigated the regulation of electron transport pathways in plant mitochondria throughout symbiotic nitrogen fixation with the aid of rhizobium bacteria and during normal plant growth as well. Millar was researching plant mitochondrial function whilst working at the University of Oxford. This is where he was introduced to proteomics (the study of all the proteins that are expressed simultaneously by an organism) as an instrument for isolating genes connected to certain physiological phenomena. His work at the University of Western Australia involved developing the proteomics of plants and plant mitochondria. The purpose of this was to gain a greater understanding of plant respiration and how it reacts under conditions of stress like salinity, chilling and oxidative damage.
