Ahmad Faizal

Metabolit sekunder

Ahmad Faizal is interested in the field of plant secondary metabolite and metabolic engineering. He developes strategies to modulate a triterpene saponin (a class of secondary metabolite) production from medicinal plants. These are including the classic tissue culture techniques, polyploidization, genetic engineering of uncommon plant species using Agrobacterium-mediated transformation, flow cytometry, and metabolic engineering.
