Plant Science and Natural Products

Transgenes appear to be particularly sensitive to epigenetic  variation which can lead to transgene silencing, i.e. the complete or partial inactivation of transgene expression. Plants are ideal model systems to study the influence of changing environmental conditions on epigenetic patterns. We are especially interested to understand how certain genomic regions become targets for epigenetic modification and how environmental stress affects epigenetic gene regulation. Our applied work investigates how transgene silencing can be prevented and how epigenetic variation can be exploited for novel breeding strategies

Plant produces an enormous variety of natural products with highly diverse structures. These products are commonly termed as “secondary metabolites “which are essential for plant growth and development. Secondary metabolites were formerly regarded as waste products without physiological function for the plant with the emergence of the field of the chemical ecology about 30 years ago. In addition to their physiological function in plants natural products also have a strong impact on human culture and have been used throughout human history as condiments, pigments, and pharmaceuticals.
