Welcome

Welcome to the Shulaev Metabolomics Lab at UNT

 

     Our  Research Group is developing metabolomics technology and applying high-throughput metabolite profiling to study stress response in microorganisms, plants and animals. We are working on  the use of a systems biology approach to study the oxidative stress response in various biological systems, including Arabidopsis thaliana,, human breast cancer cells, malaria parasite Plasmodium falciparum and yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae. The group is also performing functional genomic studies of fruit crops using Fragaria vesca (woodland strawberry) as a model. Fruit contain a large number of beneficial phytochemicals such as antioxidants and anticancer agents.
