Nicola Patron

Earlham Institute, Norwich, UK

Plants provide the potential for rapid production of complex molecules from water and light but, until recently, we lacked the tools and data necessary for complex engineering of plant systems. The application of engineering principles to plant biology has enabled us to establish platforms for high-throughput, automated, experimentation at nanoscales. We are combining these approaches with genome editing technologies and comparative genomics to investigate how regulatory functions are encoded in plant DNA. We are applying our knowledge to engineer plants as photosynthetic biomanufacturing platforms and to improve agricultural and nutritional traits in crops.
