Brief Bio: I joined Prof. Chen Xu’s group in Fujian Agriculture and Forestry University since I am a master student. My M.S research focused on How does auxin regulate flowering clock in water lily. Then I start my PhD study in the same group, my PhD research focuses on the role of auxin eflux protein-PIN mediated auxin transport under plant immune conditions or during nodule initiation. Now, the main focus of my research is the evolution of auxin transporters during soybean domestication.
