Welcome!

The Tu Lab is interested in the study of metabolic cycles and how biological processes (e.g., cell growth and division, transcription, translation, mitochondrial homeostasis, autophagy) are coupled to metabolism and the metabolic state of a cell.

Bow to the metabolites.

Three metabolic phases in the life of a yeast cell.

Many biological cycles might fundamentally be metabolic cycles.
