The main focus of our research is in understanding plant specialized metabolism. Plants produce many terpenoids, alkaloids and phenolic compounds that have ecological roles such as communication and protection. Many of these metabolites have great importance to man as they include aromas, pigments, and medicinal compounds. We utilize biotechnology to improve agricultural produce by manipulating specialized metabolic pathways in plants.
