Yinwei Zeng

Yinwei received his Bachelor of agriculture degree in 2018 in Grassland Science under the guidance of Dr. Jinlong Liu working on Plant Hydroponic System for Effective Inoculation of Rhizobium in Leguminosae and Arsenic Tolerance in Medicago truncatula under Root nodule symbiosis at the Northwest A & F University, China. As a undergraduate student, in addition to study in the room, he has been actively involved in different social activities, like WWF Qinling youth Ambassador Activity and so on. He enjoys spending time outside, camping and climbing. After graduation, he worked for several months as a research Assistant in CAS Key Laboratory of Urban Pollutant Conversion for Co-hydrothermal carbonization. Yinwei joined the HortiCell lab in the Dec. 2019 with CSC scholarship. And he is interested in understanding the plant-microbe symbiosis interactions with beneficial microbes, pathogens. His PhD project is entitled “Engineering of the lettuce rhizosphere microbiome”.
