In my first biology class, the story of using genetic engineering to produce insulin inspired me to be a scientist. Compared with other non-academic jobs I had been working on, basic research is a fascinating world. I have benefited from excellent scientists in different fields and learned various technologies in cell biology and biochemistry/biophysics. Learning and sharing is most important in research rather than chasing after impact factors. In the future, I would like to work broadly, build up interdisciplinary collaboration to facilitate plant research, and never forget the joy of science no matter which project I am working on.
