Chiu Lab at UC Davis
We are in the Department of Entomology and Nematology at University of California, Davis. Our research interests include molecular genetics of animal behavior, biological timing (circadian and seasonal rhythms), posttranslational regulation of proteins, and enhancing global food security via insect genomics and biotechnology
Our two collaborative PLOS Genetics papers with Yong Zhang's lab (University of Nevada Reno) describing mechanisms of animal circadian regulation have been published.
Congratulations to our undergraduate researcher Cindy Truong on receiving the Provost's Undergraduate Research Fellowship.
Tuta absoluta genome and SNP genotyping paper has been published!
Our PLOS Genetics paper describing the impact of PERIOD O-GlcNAcylation on circadian clock function just came out!
Our paper on the role of Casein Kinase 1alpha in regulating circadian clock function has been published in Journal of Neuroscience.
Congratulations to our undergraduate researcher Dominik Aylard on receiving the Provost's Undergraduate Research Fellowship.
Our undergraduate researchers Chris Ochoa and Dominik Aylard attended ABRCMS and each received a Poster Presentation Award.
