Brief bio: I completed my B.S. in biotechnology at Sun Yat-sen University in 2014. After graduation, I went to pursue my PhD degree in the lab of Dr. Liwen Jiang. Here, I received systematic scientific training in the cell biology. During my PhD studies, I carried out experiments to study the functional diversity of small GTPase in the plant endomembrane system as well as the regulators in plant organelle formation. In this study, it is exciting for me to see the crucial function of AtARFD1 in plant growth.
