Brief bio: I have been working on abiotic stress physiology, supervised by Prof. Guoping Zhang, since 2012 when I performed thesis for bachelor. My special concern is molecular regulation networks of salt tolerance in plant. So far I have 6 papers published in the peer-reviewed journals, which are involved in two aspects: (A) Identification of special mechanisms and genes associated with salt tolerance in barley; (B) Molecular regulation networks of salt responding genes including HvCaM1. This study showed that a barley calmodulin (HvCaM1) can negatively regulate salt tolerance via indirectly resulting in reduced Na+ transport from roots to shoots under salt stress, and the results could be useful for deep understanding the mechanisms of salt tolerance in barley as well as cereal crops.
