Brief bio:  In 2016, I obtained the PhD’s degree in Genetics at Institute of Hydrobiology, Chinese Academy of Sciences, China. My graduate research focus on how cyanobacteria acclimate to high light and the molecular regulation mechanism inside. After graduation, I continue focusing on how cyanobacteria respond and adapt to changing environment. Here my postdoctoral research has two themes, one on the physiological role of the protein phosphorylation to stress acclimation in cyanobacteria and the second on regulation mechanism of a high light induced protein in cyanobacteria. In the current paper, my research contributed to stop the puzzle about whether phosphorylation reactions are involved in state transition in cyanobacteria. We clearly showed that phosphorylation reactions and cytochrome b6f are not involved in state transition of cyanobacteria and the mechanism is completely different from those in plant and green algae.

简介:我于2016年从中国科学院水生生物研究所毕业,获得遗传学博士学位。研究生阶段,我主要关注蓝藻适应强光的机制及其调控的分子机制。同年我留所担任助理研究员,并于2017年来到法国原子能委员会Diana Kirilovsky实验室做博士后,开展合作研究,主要从事两个方向的工作,一是蓝藻的状态转化机制研究,二是探索一个sRNA对于蓝藻的强光调节蛋白OCP的表达调控作用。 在本研究中,我们发现,与绿藻以及高等植物中完全不同, 细胞色素b6f以及蛋白质磷酸化完全不参与蓝藻的状态转化,在未来的研究中,我们需要从全新的角度来探索这一问题。
