Biography

Wei yang currently works as a senior research fellow at the Department of Biochemistry, University of Turku. His research has focused on the study of flavonoids which has potential benefits for human health. Specifically, the researches focus on the qualitative and quantitative determination of complex proanthocyanidins(PAs), the influence of genetic background and growth environment (especially high latitude) on PAs accumulation, molecular modification of anthocyanins and biotransformation of flavonoid from Agricultural waste.


Research
•Development of detection methods for complex plant secondary metabolites
•Influence of environmental factors on the accumulation of proanthocyanidins
•Isolation, purification and applications of plant secondary metabolites
•Molecular modification of anthocyanins in various berries
•Biotransformation of agricultural waste as a new source of high-value supplements
