Welcome to the Qiu Laboratory. We are part of the Department of Biology at the University of Mississippi. Research interests in the Qiu Lab are largely directed towards understanding the detailed mechanism by which external and internal signals co-regulate plant growth and development and how to maximize the phenotypic plasticity of plants in the dynamic environmental conditions. In particular, our research focuses on plant morphogenetic responses to light and temperature, two essential environmental factors that regulate almost every facet of plant growth and development. The ultimate goal of our research is to improve functional traits of economic crops in facing global climate change by integrating multidisciplinary knowledge from the Qiu Lab and other scientists.
