Brief bio: When I was a child, I have a great interest to various plants. Luckily in 2011, I joined the institute of molecular and cell biology, Hebei Normal University at 2011. My research is mainly focused on the early signaling mechanism of rice and Arabidopsis in response to salt or UV-B stresses.
