Qianqian Guo, Transcription-associated metabolomic adjustments in maize occur during combined drought and cold stress

In this paper, we characterize transcriptome and metabolite profiles of maize plants under single and combined drought and cold stresses, and reveal an ABA-dependent maize acclimation mechanism to the stress combination.

Current Position: Lecturer, School of Grassland Science, Beijing Forestry University, China.

Education: PhD in Cellular and Molecular Biology at Canterbury University, New Zealand.

Non-scientific interests: I enjoy painting, reading and get to know different cultures and backgrounds, and have visited many places including New Zealand, France, Australia, Spain, Singapore and Hong Kong.

Brief bio: During my PhD, I focused on investigating the impact of carbohydrate reserves on nitrate uptake and assimilation in Lolium perenne. After getting my PhD I did a post-doc in the lab of Wenbin Zhou at Institute of Crop Sciences, Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences (CAAS) working on plant response to combined stresses in maize and TRM5-mediated tRNA methylation in Arabidopsis. In the current position, I contribute to addressing the internal and external constraints on plant resource acquisition (e.g. nitrogen and carbon) in response to variation in environment. In addition, one of my main task is doing lecture and supervision of students, which I enjoy very much.
