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:

  1. Auxin homeostasis in plant development

  2. Flavonoid functions in the nucleus

  3. Evolution and genetics of invasiveness

  4. Plant growth regulators

  5. Maryland Yeast Project

  6. Soybeans for biofuels
