Introduction of Speaker:

Caixia Gao is Principal Investigator of the Institute of Genetics and Developmental Biology (IGDB), Chinese Academy of Sciences. Prior to joining IGDB in 2009, she served as Research Scientist of DLF’s biotechnology group in Denmark, where she worked in plant genetic transformation and molecular biology. She completed her Ph.D. in Plant Genetics from China Agricultural University, Beijing. Her current research area focuses on developing novel technologies to achieve efficient and specific genome engineering, and applying them to study the function of genes and modify plant traits for high-quality, disease resistance and stress tolerance in crop species. CaixiaGao’s team has published over70 papers on plant genome editing in Science,Nature Biotechnology and other journals. These papers have been widely cited by international science community with the total number of citations exceeding 7000.
