The Grotewold Lab is located at the Center for Applied Plant Science in Rightmire Hall in the West Campus of The Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio. Our lab is currently comprised of a diverse group of research associates, undergraduate and graduate students, postdoctoral fellows and visiting scientists.
Our group is interested in establishing the structure of plant gene regulatory networks and understanding the mechanisms underlying combinatorial gene regulation. The knowledge obtained is directed towards using metabolic pathway transcription factors for plant metabolic engineering. Complementing our efforts to manipulate entire metabolic pathways with regulatory factors, our lab investigates the means by which products of specialized metabolism move within cells.
