Mathematical Modeling-Guided Evaluation of Biochemical , Developmental , Environmental , and Genotypic Determinants of Essential Oil Composition and Yield in Peppermint Leaves 1 [ W ] [ OA ]

We have previously reported the use of a combination of computational simulations and targeted experiments to build a first generation mathematical model of peppermint (Mentha 3 piperita) essential oil biosynthesis. Here, we report on the expansion of this approach to identify the key factors controlling monoterpenoid essential oil biosynthesis under… CONTINUE READING
