Brief bio: After graduation from Shandong University of Science and Technology with a bachelor’s degree in 2019, with the desire to scientific research, I have the honor to join Prof. Jixing Xia’s Lab to continue master and Ph.D studies. I have been researching the mechanism and function of Casparian strip formation in rice roots and found that three transcription factors OsMYB36s redundantly regulate Casparian Strip formation at the endodermis in rice. During this project, I also gained a lot of fun and valuable experience. Next, I will continue to investigate the molecular mechanism of Casparian strip formation in rice.
