Prof. Alain Goossens

VIB, Center for Plant Systems Biology (Ghent, Belgium)

The invited Speaker is a world expert in jasmonate, a plant hormone regulating the elusive balance between growth and defences, which includes production of bioactive specialized metabolites.

Plants produce an overwhelming variety of metabolites, some with biological activities of high interest to human. Goossens’ lab aims to identify the essential components acting in the jasmonate signalling network and to characterize the molecular mechanisms driving plant natural product biosynthesis in crop, medicinal and model plants.
