Brief bio: I like plant science. I studied for a Ph.D. in Professor Hongbo Gao’s laboratory from 2015 to 2020, engaged in the research of plant molecular biology. Arabidopsis, as a model plant, was used to study the function of plant genes by means of molecular biology. One of my topics is the functional research of genes involved in chloroplast division, such as GC1, ARC6, etc., and the other is the function research of JHS1 gene which is involved in DNA damage repair and its regulatory network.
