Our lab utilizes molecular genetics of Caenorhabditis elegans to investigate molecular mechanisms of unanswered bological phenomena at the organismic level.
The topics that we are interested in include:

● Biology of animal dispersal strategy: nictation behavior of nematodes
● Developmental plasticity of the nervous system as a wholein C. elegans
● Alternative lengthening of telomeres in the nematode and mouse embryonic stem cells/ chromosome evolution
● Korean nematode collection for studying phenotypic diversity and novelty in evolution
● Establsihment of a new Caenorahditis genetics model using a new Korean nematode species
● Hippo signaling and premature neuronal aging
● RFX isoforms and a subrouine regulatory module for specific ciliated neuron sets
● Biological significance of Htt (Huntingtin) in the nematode
