The Shaw laboratory studies how the microtubule cytoskeleton organizes and influences cellular morphogenesis. We focus on the interphase microtubule arrays in Arabidopsis plants as a model for understanding how cells generate ordered patterns in acentriolar cells.

Research areas:

  • Eukaryotic Cell Biology, Cytoskeleton, and Signaling
  • Plant Molecular Biology.

Research Interests:

  • microtubule dynamics and cellular morphogenesis in arabidopsis

Subject Area:

  • Biology.
