Brief bio: It was Lanzhou University that trained me from an undergraduate to a doctor, for which I am very grateful. During my postgraduate period, I had been engaged in the research on the biological function of protein phosphatase TOPP in Arabidopsis. In this study, we identified a TOPP-interaction subunit PP1R3 by mass spectrometry, which, participates in TOPP-mediated pathways, including the response to ABA and abiotic stress. I am currently conducting research on symbiotic nitrogen fixation at Fujian Agriculture and Forestry University, trying to provide help for the green agriculture that reduces the use of chemical fertilizers.
