Brief bio: I started to take a great interest in the roles of circadian clock molecular system in plants growth and development during my post-graduate study. I learned that the circadian clock provides time cues for the growth and development of plants through the perception and prediction of the diurnal cycle of the environment. Our research findings indicate that the circadian clock can sense and transmit day length information to control the rhythm of hypocotyl growth under photoperiod conditions. At present, I am working on the PRR gene family, which is a core component of the circadian clock. It integrates time signals to achieve the regulation of Arabidopsis morphogenesis and response to environmental stimuli.
