Plant natural products and seed biology

My lab works on the biosynthesis of natural products and the control of Arabidopsis seed germination. Our work in opium poppy has provided new knowledge and tools for production of pharmaceutical drugs such as noscapine, codeine and morphine in planta and our work on Artemisia annua has led to development of new hybrids for developing world based production of the vital antimalarial drug artemisinin.
