During postgraduate period, I studied at Rapeseed Heterosis Research and Utilization Group in National Key Laboratory of Crop Genetic Improvement supervised by professor Jinxiong Shen, and my study was focused on CIPK9 regulating in seed oil metabolism in Brassica napus. My scientific interests are in CRISPR/Cas9 biotechnology, oil metabolism, and energy metabolism. In this article, it was reported that CIPK9 played a role in oil metabolism to balance tissue energy homeostasis by mediating the crosstalk between glucose and ABA signaling.
