Our research aims to gain a better understanding of the behaviour of plant metabolic systems and their interactions. The group uses computational approaches that are centred around the analysis of large-scale metabolic networks and works closely with experimental labs. Key topics are the development of flux-balance methods to study tissue- and organ interactions, the curation and computational integration of specialised metabolism and the study of plant-environment interactions. The gained knowledge will guide metabolic engineering strategies for improved crop plant productivity and quality.
