Research Areas

Molecular Mechanisms of Jasmonate Actions
Research in our laboratory is aimed at understanding the action mechanisms of the plant hormone jasmonate (JA), which plays vital roles in regulating plant immune responses and a wide range of developmental processes. We use both tomato (Solanum lycopersicum) and Arabidopsis (Arabidopsis thaliana) as experimental model systems for three related aspects of investigation: 1) Tomato as a model system to elucidate the molecular mechanisms of systemin/JA-signaled plant immunity to mechanical wounding, insect attack and pathogen infection; 2) JA/auxin interplays in coordinating plant defense and growth; 3) Molecular mechanisms of the master transcription factor MYC2 in regulating JA-responsive gene transcription. A long-term goal of our research is to develop an environmentally friendly strategy for crop protection.
