Research in the group of Dr Yariv Brotman focuses on the use of quantitative genetic approaches for the identification of genes involved in plant metabolism, and on further functional characterization of those genes by application of different molecular biology techniques and transgenic plant approaches. Special focus is given to genes that take part in lipid metabolism, but also genes that take parts in primary and secondary metabolism are investigated. The group is also integrating knowledge from classic lipid biochemistry with lipidomics in order to refine the knowledge on lipid biochemical pathways.
