What kind of experience would it be to publish research papers in academic journals such as "Nature" and "Science"? It is estimated that the people who can enjoy this kind of joy are basically the characters at the master level. Recently, an associate professor from Wuhan City, Hubei Province successfully published an academic paper in the journal Nature, which has attracted the attention of colleagues and other scholars in his research field.
The name of this scholar is Tao Chen, and he is from the top ranking among the 211 engineering universities in China The College of Plant Science and Technology of Huazhong Agricultural University, whose title is an associate professor, is currently the master’s tutor of the school.
Chen Tao was born in 1982. Although he was not the top student in the college entrance examination, However, he was admitted to the Huazhong Agricultural University where he currently works. After graduating from the School of Life Science and Technology in 2006, Chen Tao, who has always been obsessed with the academic road in the university, finally got a reward after his hard work and obtained a direct doctorate from the school. Places for advanced studies.
After 6 years of scientific research and hard study, Dr. Tao Chen passed his defense in 2012 and graduated that year. According to the information currently displayed It can be seen that this female schoolmaster born in 1982 should have joined her alma mater and became a teacher after graduation.
From 2012 to 2017, this woman once Published academically as the first author or corresponding author 6One SCI paper, a female academic leader who published another 6 SCI papers as a co-author, has grown from an ordinary research and teaching participant to a senior talent with the title of master's tutor and associate professor.
From 2017, Chen Tao receivedAt the invitation of the University of Michigan, I began to travel to the United States as a visiting scholar, because the research team of the University of Michigan in Chen Tao’s research direction is at the advanced level in the world, and Chen Tao has become more and more familiar with the local team during his career as a visiting scholar in the United States. With the deepening of the direction, Chen Tao also increased the number of visiting scholars from one or two years to three years under the approval of the leaders of his alma mater and his employer.
It is also in this kind of mindless scientific research that Chen Tao and his team have developed significant results, and began to submit manuscripts to the journal Nature in September 2019 and published in The printed website is available for peer review and comment.
After some detailed adjustments in January this year, this research paper called "A plant genetic network for preventing dysbiosis in the phyllosphere", It was finally adopted by "Nature" magazine and published in the current magazine content on April 8.
According to the introduction of Chen Tao’s paper, this paper mainly research A new field of botany-the relationship between plant flora imbalance and plant health. In Chen Tao’s words, this is like the flora in the human body. There are beneficial bacteria and harmful bacteria. This paper has proved through a lot of data and experiments that plants can also pullThe stomach, and how to coordinate the bacterial flora in the plant to avoid plant diseases caused by this.
In fact, this research is more in line with an old saying in our country in some respects: everything has an aura; it’s just that through scientific methods, it proves that the growth and development of plants also exist with us. Some rules for animal survival.
The most important thing is that Chen Tao is still in the United States. She also admitted that she thought of returning to Wuhan in January. , But gave up under the persuasion of the local American team. Later in March and April, the idea of returning to the motherland was also moved, but it was still put on hold because of the development of the epidemic.
However, Associate Professor Chen Tao said that she will look at the specific situation. In May, if there is a chance, she will return to her motherland and Wuhan. It has to be said that this is the talent that our country needs most, even if the field of Associate Professor Chen Tao's research is not as big as the general academic classification of computer, physics or mathematics, and has enough gold content.
However, the new crown pneumonia epidemic that broke out this year has caused about 2 million infected people worldwide, and even more deaths There are tens of thousands, which also proves that in front of nature, we humans need to understand, learn, study, and use, and there are many more.
Compared to the international students of public school like Chen Tao (visiting scholars are included in the international student group) , Is also the group that the country needs the most attention at this moment. Compared with arranging chartered flights to pick up elementary school students back home, in fact, those who are sent out by the public to study abroad need to be picked up or properly placed.
Of course, Associate Professor Chen Tao is like this Top talents have already made plans to return to China. I believe that after three years of visiting research in the United States, after Associate Professor Chen Tao returns, even if there is no "Nature" paper by the first author among the co-authors, his position is It can also be righted from the deputyUp. Finally, I hope that before Associate Professor Chen Tao returns to China, he must take personal safety protection in the United States!
