Carbohydrate and Phosphate Metabolism
Primary carbon metabolism and nutrient assimilation is critical to growth and development of plants, and to the yield of biomass and major products such as starch and sucrose. The overall aim of our research is to identify and characterize key elements of regulatory mechanisms and enzyme reactions which determine the flow of carbon and nutrients in plants. The perspective is modifying metabolism for a better productivity.
