Characterisation of genes involved in phenylpropanoid and lignin biosynthesis: improving cell wall composition for the biorefinery (01SC5115)

This research project aims at pathway discovery in the phenylpropanoid metabolism of dicots, more specifically in Arabidopsis. This project aims at screening mutants of candidate genes via phenolic profiling and cell wall characterisation, followed by detailed characterisation of the hits.
