EU FP7 collaborative project TiMet, award number 245143. Funded 2010-2015.
"TiMet assembles world leaders in experimental and theoretical plant systems biology to advance understanding of the regulatory interactions between the circadian clock and plant metabolism, and their emergent effects on whole-plant growth and productivity."
Amino alcohol moieties are found in highly diverse classes of natural products that are of great importance due to their bioactivity, and they function as chiral building blocks for the synthesis of pharmaceuticals and agrochemicals. The chemical synthesis of stereoisomerically pure amino alcohols is difficult and typically requires uneconomical steps for protective group manipulations. Conventional syntheses in the chemical industry often use hazardous substances, consume large amounts of energy
