on bioproducts based at UNT. He is also a Principle Research Fellow here
at the AIBN.  

 

Dr. Brumbley received a BA in Biology from the University of Oregon in
1985 and a PhD in Plant Pathology at the University of Georgia in 1991.
His PhD studies focused on molecular plant-microbe interactions.  

 

His primary research interests are in plant metabolic engineering for
production of bio-based chemicals.  His presentation today will discuss
progress in engineering sugarcane as a biofactory for production of
polyhydroxyalkanoates, a class of biodegradable and biorenewable
plastics.
