The role of plant specialized metabolism

My research focuses on specialized metabolites, particularly glucosinolates, and their role as chemical language in plants' communication with the surroundings. At the molecular level, we investigate transport processes from source to sink(s). The gained knowledge is applied in pathway and transport engineering in synthetic biology to increase yield and in crops to improve nutritional value.
