Brief bio: Joined in the Key Laboratory of Genetics, Breeding and Multiple Utilization of Crops , Fujian Agriculture and Forestry University for PhD thesis since 2016. During my Ph.D. period, under the guidance of Prof. Weiren Wu and Yuanlin Duan, I mainly focused on the molecular mechanism of regulating floral organ development and photoperiodic flowering in rice. The related research results have been published in Frontiers in Plant Science (2022) and Plant Physiology (2022).





个人简介:我从2016年起进入福建农林大学作物遗传育种与综合利用重点实验室进行博士论文研究。博士期间,在吴为人教授和段远霖研究员的指导下,我主要研究调控水稻光周期开花和花器官发育的分子机制。相关研究成果发表在Frontiers in Plant Science (2022)Plant Physiology (2022)。
