RESEARCH INTERESTS

My current work is focused on the effects of the phytohormone ethylene on transcriptional regulation in Arabidopsis thaliana.In Dr. Joseph Eckerís laboratory at the Salk Institute of Biological Sciences, I am specifically working on identifying the targets of the transcription factors EIN3 and EIL1 using chromatin immunoprecipitation on chip.In Dr. Trey Idekerís laboratory, the aforementioned protein-DNA interaction data as well as existing protein-protein interaction and expression data will be used to generate a transcriptional regulatory network describing the ethylene signal transduction pathway.††
