“It finally got accepted!”, fol­­lowed by “It’s finally out!” about a month later. I am certain this ‘finally’ feeling about their paper is very familiar to those well-acquainted with the peer review process, and it was no different for our recently published Resource article. The ‘biotagging paper’, as we call it within the Sauka-Spengler lab,[…]

The people behind the papers: Jun-Ho Ha, Hyo-Jun Lee and Chung-Mo Park

Posted by on May 11th, 2017

Our 20th instalment of this series comes from South Korea and features an investigation into the molecular basis of how temperature influences developmental transitions in Arabidopsis seedlings, recently published in Developmental Cell. We caught up with joint first authors Jun-Ho Ha and Hyo-Jun Lee, and their supervisor Chung-Mo Park, Professor in the Department of Chemistry, Seoul National University (SNU), to hear[…]
