research investigates the molecular mechanisms that control ethylene biosynthesis
and responses. The two main research topics in the Yoon Lab are 1)
understanding the molecular mechanisms that regulate ethylene biosynthesis at
the post-translational levels, and 2) elucidation of the spatiotemporal
dynamics of the ethylene signaling network and its role in plant adaptive
response to stress. The Yoon Lab utilizes interdisciplinary techniques,
including biochemistry, genetics, and cell biology to elucidate the regulatory
mechanism governing ethylene function in plants.
