Cell Wall Dynamics and Developmental Plasticity

The long-term goal of our research is to understand dynamic architecture of plant cell wall during plant development and in response with external stimuli and identify spatiotemporal signaling and genetic networks that govern the functions and structure of plant cell wall in mechanical support, protection, and perception of microenvironment. To achieve this goal, I have outlined the following research aims:

Aim 1. To identify spatiotemporal regulatory mechanisms and signaling networks that specify cellular identity and architecture.
Aim 2. To investigate ROS-mediated signaling networks that regulate cell-type specificity and cell wall remodeling.
Aim 3. To investigate regulatory mechanisms for the localization, activity, and turnover of the cell wall proteins.
Aim 4. To investigate cell wall dynamics and their roles in plant-microbe and plant-environmental interactions.
