Our overarching goal is to unravel the role of the ubiquitin-26S proteasome system in plants.
Our lab is interested in the roles of protein ubiquitylation in plant development and growth.
Taking advantage of high throughput sequencing technologies, we are tackling these roles in
Arabidopsis thaliana and rice,through the integration of evolutionary and computational
biology, omics, genetics, biochemistry, and molecular biology. Our ultimate goal is to develop novel approaches for improving crop production through predictable manipulation of the ubiquitin-26S proteasome system.
