Professor Chodasiewicz' s research focuses on identification of stress specific components (proteins, metabolites and mRNA) of stress granules (SGs) formed under different environmental conditions.
Professor Chodasiewicz's research group also aims to understand what are the stress specific components of desert plants which make them resistant to stressful environmental conditions. This research line involves studying small molecule-protein complexes with biochemical methods combined with molecular biology. The team intends to build a map of stress specific small molecule-protein complexes to further dissect the mode of action of stress specific complexes with molecular biology and cell biology methods.
