Plant Terpenoids for Human Health: a chemical and genomic approach to identify and produce bioactive compounds
FP7 Project with U.S. partner
Short name and number
Food, Agriculture and Fisheries, Biotechnology
Plant secondary metabolites are an important source of therapeutic drugs or drug leads. The advent of genomic and metabolomic technologies has now made it possible to bring the field of plant natural products into the 21st century and replace serendipitous and haphazard finding by rational design and discovery. This proposal is devoted to plant terpenes, the largest and most diverse group of plant natural products.
