The McCormick Lab studies plant reproduction using biochemistry, cell biology, genetics and molecular biology, in 3 projects: 1) Pollen tube growth: they characterize signal transduction pathways mediated through pollen-specific receptor kinases; 2) Pollen development and function: they characterize mutations that affect transmission through the male parent; and 3) Gamete biology: the characterize sperm, egg, or embryo sac-expressed genes that may play roles in pollen tube guidance, gamete recognition or fusion.
