About Section for Plant Biochemistry
New knowledge derived from basic research within plant biology will help to solve many of the problems the world community is facing with respect to global food security, food quality, climate changes and protection of the environment.
The Section for Plant Biochemistry wants to contribute to the acquirement of this knowledge by carrying out research and training at the level of scientific excellence within molecular and whole-plant physiology typically based on unique skills within plant biochemistry.
We study central biological themes related to the formation and function of plant natural products (secondary metabolites) using the tools provided by molecular biology, biochemistry, physiology, chemistry and genetics and take advantage of new technologies within bioimaging and of the powerful omics tools in system biology oriented approaches.
The Section for Plant Biochemistry is situated in the same building as the Section for Molecular Plant Biology. The two sections have a very tight collaboration and share laboratories, offices and equipment.
Head of the Section for Plant Biochemistry is Associate Professor Kirsten Jørgensen.
