Bibliography of the speaker: Lining Tian was employed in London Research and Development Centre, Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada as research scientist. Meanwhile he worked at Department of Biology of University of Western Ontario as adjunct professor and supervisor for M. Sc. and Ph. D. students. He is the President of Canadian Association for Plant Biotechnology (CAPB). Dr. Tian received his B.S. degree and Master degree from Lanzhou University in 1982 and St. Francis Xavier University in 1990 in Canada. He received his PhD from Carleton University in 1995. Later He went on with his research at Larentian Forest Research Institute of Forest Canada as postdoctoral researcher from 1995 to 1997.

Professor Tian continued engaged in plant stress molecular biology, plant biotechnology and plant genomics for a long time. The current research programs are mainly focused on plant Arabidopsis /maize defense system and the molecular mechanism of signal transduction under abiotic stress. More than one hundred academic papers were published in academic journals such as PNAS, Plant Cell, Cell Res, Plant Physiol, J Biol Chem, Plant Cell Environment, MPMI, and Frontiers in Plant Science. He participated in Editing and publishing 3 monographs and he was editorial board of Science Book (GSB) Journals, Sci. Hort. And Plant.   He is reviewer for over various scientific international journals such as In Vitro Cell. The Dev. Biol, Pakistan Journal of Botany、Planta, Planta, j. Exp Bot, Frontier of Plant Sci, Plant Cell rep., Plant Biotechnology j..
