Research Focus

I work in the lab of Prof. Ute Höcker, on a project titled “Signal transduction in metabolic and light control of chloroplast biogenesis”. I am focusing on the Golden2-like transcription factors named GLKs, which not only regulate chloroplast development, but also participate in biotic/abiotic stress responses and senescence. I aim to investigate how different signals control the activity of GLKs.
