Title: Dissection of plant susceptibility provides novel gene resources for improving crop disease resistance

Time: 4:30 pm, September 30, 2021 30, 2021

Venue: N8T07

Introduction of Speaker:

Dr. Weixing Shan received his Bachelor, Master, and PhD degrees from Northwestern Agricultural University. He did postdoctoral research in the Department of Plant Pathology, University of California at Davis, and worked as Research Fellow in The Australian National University before being appointed as professor of plant pathology in Northwest A&F University in 2005. His research is focused on plant-pathogen interactions and oomycete crop diseases, using Phytophthora as model species. He is particularly interested in molecular basis of compatible plant-oomycete interaction for developing improved disease resistance strategies in potato against late blight pathogen Phytophthora infestans. He cloned the first oomycete avirulence gene, Avr1b, observed and discovered novel mechanisms underlying the entry of eukaryotic pathogen effectors into host cells.

Dr. Shan is a MOE Changjiang Professor. His research has been supported by prestigious grants from National Natural Science Foundation, Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs, Ministry of Education, and Ministry of Science and Technology, including National Science Fund for Distinguished Young Scholars. He has published over 50 research articles in peer-reviewed international journals, including Cell, Molecular Plant, New Phytologist, Plant Physiology, and Molecular Plant Pathology, etc.
