Guosheng Xiong. Professor.  He Joined the faculty of Plant Phenomics Research Center, Nanjing Agricultural University since 2018. He is working on the plant functional genomics, focusing on dissecting the genetic network regulate formation of important agronomic traits in rice and the molecular mechanism of plant hormone signal transduction. He systematically studied and made important progress on revealing the molecular basis of the formation of important agronomic traits in rice. These works had been published in the high profile journals, such as Nature, Nature Genetics, Plant Cell and Molecular Plant.
