Physiology & Genetics Lab

Physiology & Genetics Lab

The Physiology and Genetics Laboratory uses biochemistry, genetics, live cell imaging, phenology, and physiology to address hypothesis-driven research in plant growth and development. In my group, we investigate the roles of plant specialized compounds, including flavonoids and hormones, and other plant growth regulators in plant developmental processes and responses to the environment.

Current projects:

  • Maryland Yeast Project

  • Grain Quality Lab

  • Symbiosis

  • Plant growth regulators/ invasiveness

  • Auxin homeostasis in plant development

  • Metal-center proteins

  • Flavonoid functions
