Cloning and characterization of novel cytoskeletal regulators
Project Description

Cytoskeletons are essential scaffolds that function in organizing the cytoplasm of eukaryotic cells. The project employs a wide variety of techniques of molecular biology and cell biology to characterize newly identified cytoskeleton-associated proteins and to investigate their functions in cytoskeletal regulation. It will allow the students to gain research experience in the frontiers of cell biology.
