Associate Professor Supaart Sirikantaramas, Ph.D.
Research Interests
My major research interests focus on the integration of transcriptomics and metabolomics to elucidate the biosynthetic pathways of bioactive compounds in medicinal plants and salt tolerance mechanism in rice. In addition, mechanisms of resistance to self-produced toxic secondary metabolites in plants have also been investigating.
