New CSCS Postdoc in Hochholdinger lab: Dr. Yaping Zhou

Dr. Yaping Zhou joins our research group as additional Postdoc starting April 2023! Yaping received her doctoral degree from the University of Hohenheim with focusing on characterization of genes involved in development and function of cluster root in Lupinus albus. Since April 2020, when she started her postdoctoral research at the University of Bonn, her research focus switched from the leguminous plant white lupin to the cereal crop maize. Yaping mainly investigates transcriptomic reprogramming of maize primary root in response to cold stress at tissue and cell type level and will further enlarge our group.
