Genomic and Proteomic Analysis

These researchers are using MSI resources for two projects. The first seeks to understand the role of O-GlcNAc modifications on plant proteins. The primary focus uses mass spectrometry-based proteomic approaches to identify the plant proteins with this modification. A second component of the project uses molecular genetic approaches to investigate the role of this modification in plant growth and development.

A second project studies DNA viruses of plants. This project determines the sequences of these viruses, develops methods to detect the viruses, and studies the functions of the viral genes.
