Dr. Xiufang Xin’s lab is a newly-established group at the CAS Institute of Plant Physiology and Ecology, Shanghai, and is affiliated with the CAS-JIC Center of Excellence for Plant and Microbial Science (http://www.cepams.org/home/
). The group is interested inunderstanding plant-microbe interactions, and utilizes multiple approaches includingmolecular biology, plant genetics, biochemistry, cell biology, genomics and bioinformatics to tackle fundamental questions in the field of molecular plant-microbe interactions. Research focuses include the interplay between plant immunity and pathogen virulence mechanisms, mechanisms of environmental effect on host immunity and disease outcome, as well as plant-microbiome interactions. For more information about the group, please go to:http://www.sippe.ac.cn/ep1-8_PI.asp?id=213.
Positions for two post-doc/research associates are available.
