Understanding the Molecular Basis for Plant Cell Wall Recalcitrance to Degradation

This program seeks to understand how lignocellulose in the cell wall is degraded by analyzing the structure of that biomass before degradation. The team uses various chemical approaches to describe structural properties of the cell wall. The lab applies these approaches in characterizing unique plant feedstocks generated by the group.
