PSC Frontier Seminar series
Title: Oomycete pathogens suppress gene silencing in plants
Speaker: Prof. Yongli Qiao, Shanghai Normal University
Time: 10:30 am
Day/Date: December 7th, 2018 (Friday)
Host PI: Prof. Huiming Zhang
Venue: No.1 meeting room
Dr. Qiao received his Ph. D degree from the Seoul National University (SNU) in Korea and postdoc in UC Riverside. Now he work as a professor in Shanghai Normal University in China. His work mainly focuses on the molecular mechanisms underlying microbial pathogenesis. In particular, he are interested in elucidating the strategies employed by fungi and oomycete pathogens to facilitate the establishment and maintenance of symbiotic relationship with plant hosts. His research aims to define the fungi and oomycete pathogens effectors required to cause plant disease and regulate specific physiological processes in host cells using reverse genetic, genomics and bioinformatics techniques.
The seminar will be delivered in Chinese.
