I am interested in the mechanisms of complex gene interactions in general. And the circadian clock system is one of the most attractive fields to me. I am currently studying a family of circadian clock related genes called REVEILLEs (RVEs), which are homologs of central clock component genes known as LATE ELONGATED HYPOCOTYL (LHY) and CIRCADIAN CLOCK ASSOCIATED 1 (CCA1).
