Project Title: 
Genomic and Proteomic Analysis of Signal Transduction in Plants

These researchers are using MSI for three projects:

  • Understanding the role of postranslational modifications (O-GlcNAc and O-fucose) on plant proteins. The primary focus uses mass spectrometry-based proteomic approaches to identify the plant proteins with this modification. Another component of the project uses molecular genetic approaches to investigate the role of this modification in plant growth and development.
  • Studying 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.
  • Employing sequencing genomes to map mutations to genes affecting hormone signaling in plants.
