“Metabolic Networks Linking Plant Growth and Stress Adaption”

Abstract: Plants produce various metabolites derived from amino acids. Many of them, including plant hormones and defense compounds, play crucial roles in plant growth and development, and stress adaptation. Although each compound is produced through its biosynthetic pathway, multiple metabolic pathways are often connected. These metabolic networks enable plants to orchestrate disparate biological processes simultaneously. In my seminar, I will share some updates on metabolic routes to produce plant growth hormones using precursors of defense compounds and modifying flavonoids.
