Brief bio: I am very interested in studying fruit quality, especially in sugar accumulation. In 2014, I joined the lab of Prof. Dr. Aide Wang at the Shenyang Agricultural University and applied for a successive master-doctor program. During this period, I had been studying the molecular mechanism of sucrose accumulation in pear fruit. During the research period, I had a certain understanding of sugar transport and metabolism through consulting the literatures. I learned the methods to verify the function of the sugar transporter SWEET and to study its transcriptional regulation. The major important findings were presented in this article. The study of science has generated more intense interest. In the future, I hope to continue to engage in related occupations and contribute to the research of fruit molecular biology.
