This thesis consists of two parts, with chapters in each Part either formatted for publication or in its peer-reviewed and typeset form. Part I of the thesis investigates two peptide families whose sequences are buried in precursors for seed storage proteins: (1) A family of small and cyclic peptides and a unique macrocyclic peptide with two-disulfide bonds buried in albumin precursors; (2) A more ancient hairpin peptide family buried in precursors of vicilin. Part II of the thesis investigates the herbicidal modes of action for a group of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs that are not previously considered as herbicides.
