Our research is addressing specific aspects of plant cell function through a combination of evolutionary and comparative transcriptomics, systems biology, biochemistry, and plant physiology. In particular, we are aiming at a systems-level understanding of photorespiration and C4 photosynthesis and the regulatory principles that govern plant metabolic networks. In addition to addressing fundamental questions in plant cell biology and metabolism, our work provides a scientific basis and blueprints for synthetic biology approaches to maximize photosynthetic productivity.
