Brief bio: I graduated from Agricultural College of Yangzhou University in 2018 (B.S). During my B.S. study, I had a preliminary understanding of rice cultivation. In the same year, I was honored to join the Rice Cultivation Team of Nanjing Agricultural University under the supervision of Prof. Yanfeng Ding for my master’s degree. In 2020, I applied for master-doctor combined program. I focused on the physiological mechanism of non-structural carbohydrate (NSC) transport in rice leaf sheaths. Our results suggest that SnRK1 mediated regulation of NSC sheath-to-panicle remobilization in response to sucrose availability. This finding provides a new strategy for accelerating the sheath-to-panicle transport of NSC and field in rice.
