Brief bio: I have been worked at the Institute of Gene Science and Industrialization for Bamboo and Rattan Resources, ICBR, China, after I finished my Ph.D in forest tree genetics and breeding from Beijing Forestry University. Bamboo plants belong to the Bambusoideae subfamily of the Poaceae grass family. They are characterized by rapid growth and excellent wood quality like perennial woody dicots and have well-developed rhizomes, with buds at the nodes that develop into aboveground hollow culms. Various methods in molecular, cell biology and bioinformatics are motivating further efforts aimed at understanding and improving the molecular mechanisms about tissue differentiation and development, stress responses, and biomass Formation in Bamboo and rattan.
