Signaling Pathways in the Control of Cell Architecture

We are interested in understanding how protein kinase signaling pathways coordinate cytoskeleton organization, membrane traffic, and gene expression to define cell architecture. We are using the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae to determine the physiological functions and phosphorylation targets of highly conserved kinases that control important aspects of cell morphology.
