Our aim is to develop solar driven production of many high-value, structurally complex compounds wanted by society. We achieve this by using combinatorial biochemistry and the plasticity of natural systems to transfer the production modules into the chloroplast – i.e. the light-driven powerhouse of the plant cell – and thereby reaching higher yields of the desired compound.

This involves a wide palette of expertise; e.g. plant pathway discovery, metabolon assembly, single molecule studies, structural analysis via scattering, mass spectrometry-based gas-phase structural biology and much more.

Our synthetic biology approach integrates legal studies, bioethics and communication to equip society and scientists to constructive dialogues on new technologies and Responsible Research and Innovation.

A movie by the American Society for Cell Biology presenting our work in plant based synthetic biology. The focus areas of the movie is plant pathway discoveries and inter-disciplinary research.

The group of synthetic biology researchers is wide spanning at the University of Copenhagen.
