COURSE TAUGHT: Bio1000 and GE1000.
Man Zhou obtained her Ph.D. degree in genetics from Clemson University and received her postdoctoral training from University of Pennsylvania and University of Minnesota Twin Cities. Man is a firm believer in translational research that turn innovative scientific studies into bio-products, which rewarded her with one issued U.S. patent and one U.S. patent application. Her research interests lie in exploring the underlying molecular mechanisms of plant stress response. Her achievements have been published in SCI I journals such as Plant Physiology, Plant Biotechnology Journal, and New Phytologist.
Meanwhile, Man is a keen supporter to actively incorporate undergraduate students into scientific research. She is interested in designing bioinformatics projects for undergraduates in understanding the beauty and the complexity of gene regulation in plants by re-mining publicly available ChIP-seq and RNA-seq data sets.
Man is also a committed volunteer for research communities by serving for editorial review board of 2 journals and being a reviewer for 24 journals. Out of the lab, Man is fond of Ping-Pong, tennis, and stand-up paddle boarding.
