The aim of my research group is to study the biosynthesis of sesquiterpenoids and production of these in moss. We mainly study the specific biosynthesis of valuable sesquiterpenoids such as patchoulol, thapsigargin and others. We also aim to construct a physcomitrella (moss) that can produce high amount of our desired sesquiterpenoids, and this has led to study how we can enhance the use of green cells as chemical factories. This has lead to the establishment of Mosspiration Biotech IVS (www.mosspirationbiotech.com)
We are currently involved in several projects including www.medplant.eu, www.drugtissuecult.eu and projects with several companies.
