Sheen Lab

Our laboratory is interested in elucidating the molecular mechanisms underlying signal transduction pathways that mediate plant responses to central regulators, such as glucose, energy, stress, microbial elicitors, and hormones. A combination of molecular, cellular, genetic, genomic, and biochemical tools have been developed to dissect signaling cascades from receptors/sensors to transcription factors in Arabidopsis and maize.

Our current efforts focus on integrating diverse regulatory cascades into the signaling networks that control glucose and energy signaling, stress responses, innate immunity, hormone signaling and stem cell specification in plants.
