Other research in the laboratory includes isolation and characterization of genes that control the elongation, desaturation, or other modifications of fatty acid; the roles of membrane lipids in the cell biology and physiology of plants; involvement of jasmonate in pollen development, insect defense, and non-host resistance against fungal pathogens.

An additional research program uses mutational analysis and molecular genetics to investigate lipid structure and membrane function in the model nematode Caenorhabditis elegans.
