and biochemistry will be a plus. Our lab is currently focused on two =20
separate research areas: light-regulated de-etiolation and stomatal =20
opening response and Arabidopsis seed development. We have identified =20=

a few T-DNA-tagged mutants and characterized a few key regulators =20
involved in these processes. We aim to study their actions and =20
interactions with other components in these signaling pathways by =20
using a variety of tools in molecular genetics, molecular biology, and =20=

biochemistry. The successful applicant will also have an opportunity =20
to characterize existing mutants and to clone the mutated gene from =20
these mutants. For further information, please visit our web site =
