Yan Zhou is currently a fifth year graduate student from Dr. Patrick Schnable's lab working on developing high-throughput image-based phenotyping pipelines and using different strategies to dissect the genetic factors altering plant architectures in maize and sorghum.
Yan obatained his master degree in Genetics from Nanjing Agricutural University, China, in 2009, working on physical mapping of disease resistance genes in bread wheat. He later joined the industries and switched from wheat to clone male sterile genes in maize and helped develop a hybrid seed production system using a transgenic multicontrol sterility system (https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/full/10.1111/pbi.12786). He enrolled in Iowa State University in 2015 and become a Ph.D. student focus on using intergrated phenomic approaches to study genetic basis of plant architectural traits such as inflorescence and leaf in grain crops.
