Xinyuan Huang, College of Resources and Environmental Sciences (Nanjing Agricultural University, China)

Dr. Xinyuan Huang received his B.S. in biotechnology from Nanjing Agricultural University (2004), a Ph.D. in plant genetics from Shanghai Institute of Plant Physiology and Ecology, Chinese Academy of Sciences (2010). After finishing his postdoctoral research at Purdue University and the University of Aberdeen (2010-2016), he started his research group at Nanjing Agricultural University in China. Current research in the Huang lab works to identify the genes/QTLs that control the accumulation of mineral nutrients and trace elements in rice grains, and understand the genetic and epigenetic mechanisms maintaining of sulfur homeostasis in plants.
