|The research field is the elucidation of formation pathways of secondary metabolites in plants with focus on the carotenoid and apocarotenoid metabolism. In frame of national and international research projects we are working on various aspects of the source-sink relationship of carotenoids in plants including the influence of selected growth conditions or the bioavailability of carotenoids and apocarotenoids in human cell lines. Moreover, we are interested in changes along the food chain induced by storage or production conditions. Research is published in 28 scientific articles and 3 review papers. Furthermore, we contributed to 7 monographs.|
