Plants and microorganisms, including pathogens, generate innumerable bioactive chemical compounds for survival, growth, self-defense, communication, and other undiscovered purposes.
Because natural products also have potential value for a variety of nutritional and pharmaceutical applications, the bioactive compounds in a wide range of plants and microorganisms have been actively identified and studied.
Our lab introduces the "Genomic identification - Structure-based functional study - Protein/Metabolic engineering" strategies to understand and engineer the production of primary & secondary (specialized) metabolites
for human health.
