DynaMo Center of Excellence – University of Copenhagen


Welcome to DynaMo!

At DynaMo Center we address basic biological questions using the model plant Arabidopsis thaliana and its primary defense compounds, glucosinolates, as a powerful model system. The insights gained have potential societal benefits by opening up for unforeseen opportunities in e.g. synthetic biology, medicine and sustainable agriculture.
