I currently study variations in molecular level of plant protein and receptor expressed in eukaryote cells to get more understanding molecular plant dynamics. My research combines the knowledge and techniques in synthetic biology, gene and protein engineering, bioinformatics, computational designing proteins, bioassay, etc. This interdisciplinary work will allow us to engineer novel receptors or proteins to increase a function or bioprocess in living cells for medical, environmental or other potential applications.
