This laboratory aims to improve plant resource productivity, establish safe and sustainable cultivation methods, and identify new applications and usages of plant resources. The research and education specifically relate to physiological mechanisms underlying stress tolerance and lipid synthesis in food and industrial crops, weed control, as well as utilization of plant-derived materials for new purposes, e.g., as sources of renewable energy.
