Welcome to the Chan Yul Yoo Lab at the University of Utah!

Welcome to the Chan Yul Yoo Lab in the School of Biological Sciences at the University of Utah!

Just as we see the world by our eyes, plants see light with photoreceptors to control growth and development through the entire life cycle. Our lab is broadly interested in understanding fundamental functions of photobodies (photoreceptors-containing biomolecular condensates) as developmental and environmental sensors in controlling plant growth, development, and chloroplast biogenesis (greening). We use a combination of molecular biology, cell biology, and genetic techniques to explore fundamental mysteries of photobodies.

EDI (Equity, Diversity, & Inclusion) commitment
– The Chan Yul Yoo lab is committed to create an inclusive, positive, and healthy lab environment where individual lab members feel valued, regardless of race, age, gender, sexual orientation, nationality, and religious beliefs. We aim to promote diversity and support equity in the lab.

We are looking for passionate undergraduate students and PhD students!
