More Welcome to liu lab

In liu lab, we are using Arabidopsis and maize as the model plant and focus on the mechanism of light regulated transcription, light regulated development and also the crosstalk between light signal and other environment signals.

For Arabidopsis, we areworking on the biochemical mechanism of light regulated proteolysis, the molecular mechanism of light regulated transcription and circadian clock regulated transcription, the mechanism of light regulated
