Hi! My name is Ting Yang. I’m a postdoc in the lab of Fernando Geu-Flores at Copenhagen Plant Science Centre. I am interested in the biosynthesis of plant-derived bioactive compounds, as well as their ecological functions in plant-insect interactions. Currently, I am working on the biosynthesis of quinolizidine alkaloids, which are toxic to insects and mammals. This research could open up our understanding on how some pharmaceutically and chemically important alkaloids are biosynthesized.
