Plant Biochemistry: Structural and Functional Proteomics of Metabolic Pathways. Genomics research has produced a wealth of new information which revealed that less than 50% of plant proteins have a known function. My lab focuses on functional characterization of these proteins using a number of synergistic technologies including protein crystallography, protein-protein interactions, protein-ligand complexes and enzyme kinetics. My group also studies enzymes of the shikimate pathway by protein crystallography and mechanistic enzymology.
