I was fortunate to join the group of Dr. Xiaoyu Qiang in the summer of 2017 and I became very interested in molecular biology. During the master period, I was engaged in the basic research of molecular mechanism of plant disease resistance. I mainly conducted research on mechanisms of plant susceptibility factor RTP1 in regulating ER stress response (UPR), leading to the finding that RTP1 negatively regulates disease resistance by modulating UPR regulators bZIP60 and bZIP28. I will continue to work hard in the future work and study!
