Our research projects involve national and international collaborations, several of which are mentioned in the summary of research.

Funding for our research is from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) through its Discovery and Strategic programs and student and postdoctoral fellowship programs, the Canadian Foundation for Innovation (CFI), the British Columbia Knowledge and Development Funds (BCKDF), Genome Canada, Genome BC, the Province of British Columbia, and other sources.

My group uses laboratory space in the new Michael Smith Laboratories, in the adjacent Networks of Centres of Excellence (NCE), and in the Forest Sciences Centre. We have modern equipment and facilities for genomics, microarray gene expression profiling, proteomics sample preparation, plant molecular biology, enzyme biochemistry, and analytics. Together with Dr. Hennie van Vuuren, UBC Wine Research Centre, I have developed a dedicated mass spectrometry laboratory for analysis of small molecules (e.g. plant secondary metabolites, signaling compounds) equipped with new GC/MS, GC/FID, radio-GC, and LC/MS instruments.
