Jae Hyung Lee
Jae-Hyung has completed a doctoral dissertation at Seoul National University (Seoul, Korea). He focused on the Arabidopsis biochemistry and signal transduction in Dr. Chung-Mo Park’s lab. He joined Jackson lab in August 2019. He is mainly focusing on regulatory mechanisms of ramosa3 branching phenotype. He is trying to use proteomics to identify physical interactors of RAMOSA3. When he is free, he likes outdoor activities, for example hiking.
Kyle received his Ph.D. from the Department of Plant Biology at the University of Georgia in the lab of Kelly Dawe. Kyle used crosses between Zea diploperennis and maize to map perennial regrowth to two loci as part of his Ph.D. work. In Kyle’s current research, he is interested in the developmental genetics of perennial regrowth in grasses.
Munenori joined the Jackson Lab in January 2016 and is studying the mechanism of the cell-to-cell trafficking of transcription factors through plasmodesmata. In plants, the certain transcription factors can be actively and selectively transported from cell to cell, which is crucial for the development. He aims to reveal the mechanism of the active and selective transport of transcription factors.
Xiaosa received his bachelor in Nanjing Agricultural University where he conducted three year QTL-mapping research on rice yield in Dr. Jianmin Wan Lab. He then got his PhD degree in The University of Texas at Austin where he focused on the phytochrome-mediated light signaling pathway of Arabidopsis in Dr. Enamul Huq lab. In the Jackson Lab, he is mainly focusing on the identification and functional characterization of genetic and physical interactors of ramosa3 on the regulation of maize inflorescence meristem development. Additionally, he is studying the genome-wide regulation by transcription factors on the maize development and growth. Xiaosa likes to play basketball a lot during his free time. The sport gives him energy and strength to overcome difficulties of scientific research.
Lei received his PhD degree in Huazhong Agricultural University (Wuhan, China) on maize quantitative genetic area, especially for maize yield traits, like kernel row number. He joined Jackson Lab in Oct 2016, and now he focuses on maize inflorescence developmental study. He is trying to use Genome Editing Technology to create mutants of maize inflorescence genes and find weak alleles to enhance the maize yield. When he is free, he likes outdoor activities, for example biking and hiking.
I graduated from the University of Missouri with a Ph.D. degree in Plant Breeding, Genetics and Genomics, under the mentorship of Dr. David Braun. The primary focus of my dissertation research was identification and characterization of genes that control carbohydrate partitioning. In the Jackson lab, my research is focused on genetic mechanisms determining maize inflorescence architecture. I am investigating the role of trehalose-6-phosphate signaling in early ear development by characterization of different genes involving in trehalose biosynthesis. I am also interested in studying genetic mechanisms that control assimilate unloading at the inflorescence meristem. Outside of the lab, I enjoy spending time with my friends, hiking and reading book. I also love traveling and visiting new places, meeting new people and learning about different cultures.
Penelope Lindsay earned her PhD in Plant Biology from Cornell University . During her PhD, she studied how plants regulate arbuscular mycorrhizal symbiosis in the lab of Maria Harrison. She joined the Jackson lab in January 2020 to gain a deeper understanding of maize inflorescence development. She is particularly interested in how signaling proteins interact to mediate inflorescence development, and how fine-tuning the expression of signaling genes can positively impact maize yield. When not in the lab, Penelope enjoys making electronic music and spending time with her cat.
