Brief bio: I graduated from Yangzhou University and started my career as a postgraduate in Professor Chen Chen’s laboratory of Yangzhou University in September 2017. During the postgraduate period, I was mainly engaged in the research on auxin-regulated rice endosperm development, and learned knowledge and skills of plant molecular biology. In this study, we found that OsYUC11 acts as a key player for auxin biosynthesis in the endosperm and the YUC-mediated auxin biosynthesis is essential for grain filling of rice. I am very interested in the current field of research and hoping to strive for further breakthrough in the future research work. In the scientific research work, my tutor, project collaborators and classmates were extremely helpful to me. Taken the opportunity here, I would like to express my sincere thanks to them.
