Summary

Affiliation: Northeast Normal University
Location: Changchun, China
Summary:
My research mainly focuses on the roles of transcription factors on signalling transduction and plant growth and development,including single MYBs regulated trichome patterning, ARFS mediated auxin signalling, ethylene regulated plant growth and development.

If you are interested in any of the projects, you are welcome to join my lab. Currently I have postdoc and graduate student positions open. Foreigners are welcome!
