1. Molecular mechanism of plant stomatal movement under drought stress

Focused on signal transduction in plant hormone abscisic acid (ABA) regulates stomatal movement under drought stress, and biological function of the protein kinase GHR1 in Arabidopsis. Plant physiology and molecular techniques were used to study the phenotype of the ghr1 mutant. The results showed a new protein kinase GHR1 that interacts with, phosphorylates, and regulates slow anion channel associated1 (SLAC1). We also uncover GHR1 is negatively regulated by ABA Insensitive2 (ABI2) but not by ABI1.

2. Design molecular markers for assisted breeding of melon.

From melon transcriptome sequencing, find information and design molecular markers (SSR and SNP) for melon molecular assisted breeding.
