The Bio-based Economy group is approaching the ‘bio-based’ research from four different angles, both from a fundamental and an applied side. Emphasis is on plant cell walls for a better understanding of the cell wall biosynthesis and degradation pathways, both for first and second generation bio-fuels. For polymeric carbohydrates and plant oils research aims at the identification of interesting compounds and genes for different industrial, food and medical applications, identifying the plant as a bio-refinery.
Crops: maize, miscanthus, potato, crambe, calendula, jatropha, flax, hemp and B. napus.
