Asteraceae Developmental Biology and Secondary Metabolism

Gerbera Lab

Our research model is Gerbera hybrida, a common ornamental crop that represents the large Asteraceae plant family. We are interested in the gene regulatory networks that control the unique inflorescence architecture in this family contributing to its evolutionary success. We also aim at dissecting the biosynthetic pathways leading to Asteraceae specific secondary metabolites.
