Research Summary

Using a diverse set of tools drawn from synthetic biology, molecular genetics and evolutionary biology, the Nemhauser Lab is discovering how the architecture and dynamics of phytohormone-triggered signaling networks enable effective information processing. Along the way, we are mechanistically dissecting cellular functions shared by most eukaryotes, such as ubiquitin-mediated protein turnover and transcriptional activation/repression. Ultimately, these findings can be used to understand natural systems and guide the design of novel organisms.
