    Pathway Engineering for secondary plant products

    In the area of secondary plant metabolites, main focus has been to study the expression and regulation of genes involved in biosynthesis of important molecules, which are beneficial for human health. Lab has attained success in different aspects such as:

  • Transgenic plants accumulate isoflavones. in flower petals, but leaf tissue was devoid of these phytoceuticals.
  • Transformation and development of transgenic plants.
