Notice of “Holding a Report Meeting of Professor Zhang Yuelin and Professor Li Wei of UBC University in Canada”

Sourse:   Date:2019-05-17

  Speaker:Prof Xin Li

  Title:Regulation of plant immunity by proteasome mediated protein degradation

  Date and Time:9:00-10:15AM, May 21, 2019

  Venue:Lecture hall (first floor, west side), College of Agronomy, south campus

  Introduction of speaker:

  Prof. Xin Li is a full professor at Department of Botany and Michael Smith Laboratories, University of British Columbia, Canada. She got her B.Sc in Department of Biology at Fudan University in 1989 and, Ph.D in plant pathology from Oklahoma State University in 1995. She finished her post-doc training in Duke University from 1996 to 1999. From 2001 she had been working in Department of Botany at University of British Columbia as an assistant, associated and full professor. She is currently studying regulatory mechanisms of NB-LRR-mediated immune response in Arabidopsis plants and molecular mechanisms of stem rot fungal pathogen Sclerotinia sclerotiorum. So far, Dr Li has published over 90 papers in many top journals including Cell Host & Microbe, Nature Plants, Current Biology, Mol Plant, Plant Cell,eLife and New Phytologist. In this talk, she will introduce the progress of proteosome-mediated innate immunity in Arabidopsis, the key components positively or negatively regulating NLR-mediated immune response etc. 

  Speaker:Prof Yuelin Zhang

  Title:Genetic analysis of SA signaling in Arabidopsis

  Date and Time:10:00-11:15AM, May 21, 2019

  Venue:Lecture hall (first floor, west side), College of Agronomy, south campus

  Introduction of speaker:

  Prof. Yuelin Zhang is an associate professor at Department of Botany, University of British Columbia, Canada. He got her B.Sc in Department of Biology at Fudan University in 1989 and, Ph.D in biochemistry and molecular biology from Oklahoma State University in 1995. He finished his post-doc training in University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and Duke University from 1995 to 1999. From 2005 to 2011, he worked as a researcher in National Institute of Biological Sciences in Beijing.  Since 2012, he has been working in Department of Botany at University of British Columbia as assistant and later associated professor. He is currently dissecting signal transduction pathways downstream of plant immune receptors, genetic analysis of systemic acquired resistance, as well as engineering durable resistance against fungal pathogens. So far, he has published over 80 papers in many top journals including Cell,Cell Research, Cell Host & Microbe, Nature Communications, Plant Cell and eLife. In this talk, he will introduce the progress of salicylic acid (SA) signaling transduction in Arabidopsis and, how SA is synthesized and sensed by receptors.
