During the master’s degree, under the guidance of Professor Yajun Xi and researcher Ertao Wang from the Institute of Plant Physiology and Ecology of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, I mainly engaged in the study that the molecular mechanism of legume small G protein ROP involved in root nodule symbiotic signal transduction. After that, I entered the School of Life Sciences of Fudan University in September 2017 and pursued a PhD under the guidance of Professor Hongquan Yang. During my Ph.D., my main research work was the molecular mechanism of the cross-interaction of blue light signal and gibberellin signal mediated by the blue light receptor CRY1 in Arabidopsis. In this study, we found that CRY1 controls photomorphogenesis through inhibition of GA-induced degradation of DELLA proteins and GA signaling, which is mediated by CRY1 inhibition of the interactions of DELLA proteins with GID1 and SLY1, respectively.
