Brief bio: I completed my undergraduate to doctoral education in Hunan Agricultural University. During this period, I was very honored to join the research group of Professor Xueyong Li, Institute of crop sciences, Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences, and engaged in studies on plant architecture regulation of rice. My research was mainly about a rolled leaf mutant of rice. In the mutant, we found a single-base substitution in the 3′-UTR of the URL1 gene, which enhanced the URL1 mRNA stability. Our research demonstrated that URL1, together with the TPL2, ROC5, and ACL1 genes, regulated the morphological development of rice leaves. At present, I work as an instructor in Hunan University of Humanities, Science and Technology, and I am still actively engaged in rice related research.






个人简介:我在湖南农业大学接受了从本科到博士阶段的教育,在此期间,我很荣幸以客座研究生的身份加入了中国农业科学院作物科学研究所李学勇老师的课题组,从事水稻株型调控的相关研究。我的研究主要是围绕一个水稻卷叶突变体展开,在该突变体中,我们发现URL1基因的3′-UTR中有一个单碱基突变,这种突变增强了URL1 mRNA的稳定性与表达量。进一步的研究表明,URL1TPL2ROC5ACL1基因共同调控水稻叶片的形态发育。目前,我在湖南人文科技学院任讲师,仍在继续积极从事水稻相关研究。
