Research and Teaching Interests
The Lee Laboratory studies Chlamydomonas reinhardtii as a living fossil to investigate the molecular mechanisms of sexual development common to most eukaryotes. Our research goals are:
- What is the direct contribution of sex to macro-evolutionary transitions from simple cells to diverse life forms?
- How can we engineer stress-resilient photosynthetic organisms to secure food supply under severe climate changes?
For more information, please check out our publication at Google Scholar.
Keywords: Chlamydomonas reinhardtii, Sexual development, Developmental evolution, Organelle inheritance, Nutrient starvation response, Eukaryotic origin.
Teaching Interests: Cell biology (organelles), Development (life cycle), Genomics (technology), Algae (evolutionary history)
