Our research focuses on two distinct areas: biofuels and unraveling the mechanisms of plant defense responses. Our biofuels projects include the manipulation of starch to oil conversion in oat endosperm and the engineering of altered fatty acid profiles in the seeds of promising energy crops. The plant defense projects relate to early stress detection events and the hydroperoxide lyase mediated signaling network.
