Member of the European Molecular Biology Organization (EMBO)
His main research concerns Lignin, Biochemistry, Cell wall, Monolignol and Arabidopsis. He has included themes like Cellulose and Biotechnology in his Lignin study. His Biochemistry study frequently draws connections to adjacent fields such as Xylem.
His Cell wall research includes elements of Biosynthesis, Ferulic acid and Cell biology. Wout Boerjan regularly links together related areas like Sinapyl alcohol in his Monolignol studies. His work carried out in the field of Arabidopsis brings together such families of science as Arabidopsis thaliana and Molecular biology.
Wout Boerjan mostly deals with Lignin, Biochemistry, Botany, Arabidopsis and Cell wall. His Lignin study incorporates themes from Cinnamyl-alcohol dehydrogenase, Cellulose, Xylem and Monolignol. His work deals with themes such as Quantitative trait locus, Abscisic acid, Horticulture and Genetic variation, which intersect with Botany.
His Arabidopsis study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Arabidopsis thaliana, Wild type and Cell biology. He works mostly in the field of Cell biology, limiting it down to topics relating to Auxin and, in certain cases, Auxin homeostasis, as a part of the same area of interest. His study in Cell wall is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Biomass and Polysaccharide.
Wout Boerjan focuses on Lignin, Biochemistry, Cell wall, Arabidopsis and Phenylpropanoid. His Lignin study deals with the bigger picture of Organic chemistry. Wout Boerjan combines subjects such as Polymerization, Polysaccharide, Sinapyl alcohol, Hedgehog signaling pathway and Metabolism with his study of Cell wall.
His Polysaccharide research focuses on subjects like Natural variation, which are linked to Monolignol. His Arabidopsis research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Cinnamic acid, Arabidopsis thaliana, Auxin and Somatic cell. Wout Boerjan has researched Phenylpropanoid in several fields, including Casparian strip, Extracellular, Biophysics, Endodermis and Plant cell.
Wout Boerjan mainly investigates Lignin, Cell wall, Biochemistry, Arabidopsis and Arabidopsis thaliana. To a larger extent, Wout Boerjan studies Organic chemistry with the aim of understanding Lignin. His study on Cell wall is covered under Botany.
His work in the fields of Biochemistry, such as Ferulic acid, Brachypodium, Mutant and Gene family, overlaps with other areas such as Hordeum vulgare. His studies deal with areas such as Biosynthesis, Enzyme, Stereochemistry, Coumarin and Phytotoxicity as well as Arabidopsis. He has included themes like Umbelliferone, Ectopic expression, Gene cluster, Elicitor and Pectinase in his Arabidopsis thaliana study.
