Welcome to the Wallace Lab!
Our lab is broadly interested in metabolism and how post-translational modifications, such as protein phosphorylation and glycosylation, regulate metabolic and signaling processes.
Currently, our work is focused on the following topics:
Understanding the regulation of the plant cellulose synthase complex by post-translational phosphorylation.
Utilizing chemical biology-inspired approaches to perturb the biosynthesis of plant cell wall polysaccharides.
Investigating the role of protein O-fucosylation in plant growth and development.
Identifying novel antifungal and antimicrobial plant secondary metabolites.
