Brief bio: I received my master degree in Crop genetics and Breeding from Yangzhou University in 2009. Then I was admitted to the Institute of Genetics and Developmental Biology Chinese Academy of Sciences (IGDB, CAS, Beijing, China) and joined Dr. Yunhai Li’s lab at the Center of Agricultural Resources Research as a PhD student. My PhD project focused on molecular mechanisms controlling the final size of seeds and organs in Arabidopsis thaliana using molecular genetics and biochemical approaches. After graduation I decided to continue my scientific career as a postdoc and turned my attention to mining and identification of key enzyme genes in secondary metabolism in Chinese herbal medicine. After two-year postdoctoral experience, I am currently working at Yichun University in Jiangxi Province and continue my research interests in plant science.
