Research Interests

My areas of interest are molecular biology, genetics, gene regulation, transposable elements, mechanisms of plant hormone action, and plant stress responses. I have previously worked on the bacteriophage f2 RNA replicase, the structure of nuclear RNAs, the 5S ribosomal RNA genes of Xenopus laevis, the genetics, structure, and regulation of maize transposable elements, and the use of maize transposons in gene discovery and characterization. Current work focuses on the molecular mechanisms underlying plant stress responses, the biological function of microRNAs, and computer integration of multiple data sources to understand the operation macromolecular networks.
