We are very fortunate to count with Dr. Yang’s expertise in our lab!
Dr. Zhi Min Yang is a Professor of Plant Physiology and Molecular Biology in Nanjing Agricultural University (NAU). He earned his PhD degree at NAU in 1999, and received his postdoctoral training at the University of Kagawa, Japan and Justus-Liebig University, Germany. He is working on physiological and molecular mechanisms for plant abiotic stress responses (salt, drought or heavy metals). Epigenetic regulation of stress tolerance, toxic metal uptake and accumulation in plants through small/long non-coding RNAs (e.g. microRNAs) and DNA methylation is currently major interest. He published 80 peer-reviewed papers and serves as associate/academic editors of Gene, Plant Gene and PloS One.
