Research Summary: I am interested in plant epigenetics and endosperm development. I work with a plant demethylase DME, which controls the epigenetic status of the plant, especially in the endosperm. I will try to figure different phenotypes caused by DME plants, infer DME’s role in development, and investigate DME’s molecular targeting functions.
