I am Changtian Pan, a postdoc in Prof. Yiping Qi lab. I am passionate about genome editing technologies, especially based on CRISPR platform. My work includes screening novel Cas effectors for genome editing and developing novel transcriptional regulation systems in plants. Specifically, I aim to develop a robust and potent system for simultaneous transcription activation and genome editing of staple crop, rice. I believe the developed systems will contribute my fellow scientists in their research as well as plant breeders to develop novel crop varieties to combat climate change.
