Brief bio: Jianping got his PhD in 2017 from the Department of Plant Genetics and Breeding at China Agriculture University (CAU) at Prof. Zichao Li’ laboratory and then he started a postdoctoral research under supervision of Prof. Xiangdong Fu at Institute of Genetics and Developmental Biology, Chinese Academy of Sciences. During his work in CAU, he focused on characterization of yield-related QTL in rice. In July 2017, Jianping joined the Fu lab as a postdoctoral researcher. He has more currently become interested in using natural variation to improve our understanding of drought resistance in rice.
