Hello, I am Zhiyong Yue from Hebei, China. I received my B.S. in horticulture from Northwest A&F University and I am currently a graduate student in horticulture there. I have been awarded a scholarship from A&F University to conduct research in the U.S. I joined the Hall lab as a Visiting Scholar on September 3, 2013 and I will be visiting through March 2014. During my visit, I will be using mass spectrometry and proteomic methods to study the strigolactone response in apple and Arabidopsis.
