Prof. Alain Goossens

Date & Location: October 6, 2017, at 4p; Room 1200 Molecular Plant Sciences Building

Subject: Jasmonate, Plant Secondary Metabolism, and Synthetic Biology

Host: Gregg Howe

About the Speaker

University: Ghent University-Belgium

Research Interests: Across the plant kingdom, the jasmonate hormone steers the delicate balance between growth and the activation of defence programs, such as the production of bioactive specialized metabolites. By using cutting-edge functional genomics tools, in combination with reverse genetics screenings, the Goosens lab aims to identify the essential components acting in the jasmonate signalling network and to characterize the molecular mechanisms driving plant natural product biosynthesis, in medicinal and model plants.
