While conducting doctoral research on the molecular mechanisms that control the tillering of switchgrass, I established the CRISPR/Cas9-based genome editing platform for switchgrass. After graduating, I continued my research on plant genome engineering, plant synthetic biology, and developing plant-based biosensor for monitoring microbial signals. The research results have been published in Plant Biotechnology Journal, Plant Physiology, Frontiers in plant science, and etc.
个人简介：博士期间，我主要从事柳枝稷的基因编辑和分蘖分子机制研究。博士毕业之后，我继续从事关于植物基因工程，植物合成生物学，以及监测微生物信号的植物生物感受器的开发等研究工作。研究成果已发表于Plant Biotechnology Journal、Plant Physiology 和Frontiers in plant science 等杂志。
