Plant Chemetics Laboratory

University of Oxford

Welcome to the Plant Chemetics Laboratory


The Plant Chemetics lab investigates the molecular mechanisms underpinning host manipulation by plant pathogens, with a particular focus on apoplast manipulation of Solanaceous plants by bacterial microbes. Our research activities also aim at improved molecular pharming of secreted (glyco)proteins through the depletion of extracellular proteases. Unique is our approach to display protein activities by pioneering activity-based protein profiling (ABPP), a powerful functional proteomics technology that offers an exciting platform for collaborations. Please contact us if you are interested to join or collaborate!
