 General Information

Youngwoo Lee is a Ph.D. student with Dr. Dan Szymanski investigating the role of RNA binding proteins (RBPs) in RNA transport, localization, and post-transcriptional processes during endosperm development in Rice seed. The overall objectives of Youngwoo’s research are to: 1) develop a chromatographic method for separating RBPs multi-protein complexes from developing rice seeds; 2) Profile rice seed proteome and identify the composition of RBPs multi-protein complexes involved in each RNA transport pathway using quantitative proteomics; and 3) Develop a web-based platform to integrate proteomic metadata of Arabidopsis and Rice in order to enable research team members and the public to have access to our data. The ultimate goal of this research will be to understand how RBPs regulate seed development in monocots.
