The Plant Cell Biology Research Centre is a Special Research Centre of the Australian Research Council within the School of Botany at The University of Melbourne. It was established as a Centre of Excellence in 1982 with Professor Bruce Knox in association with Dr Adrienne Clarke, with expertise in two areas of plant biology and chemistry. The first is the molecular and cellular biology of breeding systems, that is systems leading to seed formation in plants. The second is the biology and chemistry of complex carbohydrates, that is, the molecules which form the walls of plants and their secretions, and slimes.
