Research Interest 1

The Parry lab research's the function of the Plant Nuclear Pore Complex (NPC) using a variety of experimental techniques:

- Genetic analysis of plants with mutations in specfic nucleoporin proteins

- Microscopy to address nuclear transport of key plant transcriptional regulators

- Biochemical analysis of the composition of the Plant NPC throughout the cell cycle

- Microarray and Sequencing to identify genes whose expression is directly and indirectly influenced by the plant NPC!
