The new PhD flanked by the two external reviewers of his PhD committee and his supervisor. From Left to right: Professor Stefan Binder from Ulm University, PhD Bo Salomonsen, Reader Janneke Balk from John Innes Centre, and Head of DynaMo Professor Barbara Ann Halkier.

The title of Bo's thesis is 'Pathway Elucidation and Metabolic Engineering of Specialized Plant Metabolites'. His PhD project describes a palate of tools used in generation of cell factories for production of specialized plant metabolites, namely the plant defense compounds camalexin and glucosinolates. The thesis shows methodologies for elucidation of biosynthesis pathways and describes how to transfer obtained knowledge of metabolic pathways to other organisms through establishment of a synthetic biology platform.

Bo's PhD Supervisor is Head of DynaMo Professor Barbara Ann Halkier

Congratulations Bo!
