About Us

Our research is focused on diterpenoids, which are a large group of natural products found in both plants and microbes. The work spans a range of disciplines, from basic biochemical and biophysical investigations of enzyme function and mechanism, as well as metabolic pathways and networks, to ecological studies of the role of the resulting diterpenoids in plant-plant and plant-microbe interactions.
