Brief bio: I joined Prof. Guo Da-Long’s group in 2018 and have been working mainly on genetic variation in grapevine berry ripening under his supervision since then. This study investigated the population genetic characteristics and the distribution of conserved genetic segments (haplotypes) in the ‘Pearl of Csaba’ pedigree by whole-genome resequencing of the ‘Pearl of Csaba’ early-ripening grapevine pedigree population, combined with sequencing data from published late-ripening and wild grapevine germplasm. Further joint experiments related to selection signals and QTL loci associated with early-ripening traits identified several key genetic segments and candidate genes that may be involved in controlling variation in grapevine berry ripening, providing a theoretical basis and genetic resources for molecular breeding of early ripening grapevines. I have always been interested in the variation and evolution of agronomic traits in plants and will continue my research in this area in the future.
