Research Summary: 

The complexity of genetic networks is a daunting challenge for developmental biologists. In plants, this complexity is increased by the strong influence of the environment. Hormones are critical integrators of developmental, environmental and metabolic cues. Using a diverse set of tools including molecular genetics, biochemistry and synthetic biology, the Nemhauser Lab is discovering the molecular logic underlying hormone-triggered signaling pathways. Ultimately, these findings can be used to understand natural systems--both plants and other eukaryotes--and guide design of new organisms.
