The Hake Lab is interested in the genetic basis of morphological diversity. We use mutants to identify genes that are responsible forming different parts of the plant. Although we mostly work with maize and other grasses, such as sorghum and Brachypodium, many of the genes we identify have conserved functions in other plants. Once we identify the gene responsible for the mutant phenotype, we use a multitude of techniques to understand how the gene carries out its specific task.
