Dr. Kao's Research Interest: We use Petunia inflata as a
model to study biochemical, molecular, and structural bases
of a self/non-self recognition mechanism between pollen and
pistil adopted by flowering plants to prevent in breeding and
promote outcrossing.    

Associate Professor of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, and of Chemistry

Dr. Weinert's Research Interest:  The understanding of how
the globin coupled sensor protein family senses oxygen and
transmits the binding signal into downstream events.
