Projects include:

  1. Creating accessible and effective infrastructure for plant metabolomics
  2. Implementing approches for qualitative/quantitative flux analysis
  3. Measuring protein turnover
  4. Examining fruit quality traits (linking traits to genes through metabolites)
  5. Understanding herbal medicine efficacy, standardization, and quality metrics
