PhD Thesis

started in Nov 2019
Disentangling Ecological Functions of Triterpenoids in Nicotiana attenuata
Friedrich-Schiller-Universität Jena, Faculty for Biosciences
First Supervisor: Prof. I.T. Baldwin
Co-Supervisor(s): Prof. Dr. R. Oelmüller, Ph.D. Y. Bai

Triterpenes and their triterpenoid derivatives are widely distributed in plants as specialized metabolites of medicinal, agricultural, and ecological importance. My research interest is to reveal the ecological functions of triterpenes in N. attenuate. To explore its synthesis and how it helps N. attenuata win the competition for survival.
