Research Interests & Projects
My works aim to decode the genomic and biochemical features that contribute to the vast diversity of plants’ specialized metabolism.
Our immediate focus is on the medicinal alkaloids, of which many constitute the essential ingredients of traditional medicine worldwide. We utilize available, and/or generate new, RNA-seq and genome data of medicinal plants to investigate their metabolism with a suite of analytical, biochemical, bioinformatic and molecular genetic approaches.
Our long-term goal is to deliver biotechnologies that produce and/or customize high-value phytochemicals. These will allow sustainable alternatives complementing chemical extraction from plants or synthesis from petrochemicals.
