Signal transduction is essential for plant growth and stress response. The Jang lab uses genetic, genomic, and molecular approaches to understand the mechanisms underlying plant nutrient and hormone signal transduction in a model plant Arabidopsis thaliana. We focus on the dissection of mechanisms by which signal transduction affects gene expression at the post-transcriptional and translational level, in two specialized cellular niches called Processing-Body and Stress Granule.
