Chao Su

Chao did his Masters from 2013-2016 in the group of Prof. Xia Li at the Institute of Genetics and Developmental Biology, Chinese Academy of Sciences (IGDB) before he started as a PhD student in October 2016 in our lab. His project focuses on the identification of proteins that control the initial steps of rhizobial entry into host cells.
