from a food company`s point of view

Dr. Duan has been working in the field of plant
biotechnology for many years. Currently Dr. Duan is the
molecular team 2 leader in J. R. Simplot company's Plant
Sciences Business, working on research and development
of a number of potato agronomic and consumer traits using
intragenic and cisgenic technology. Dr. Duan obtained his
PhD degree from the University of Connecticut, where he
was a key developer of the Gene-Deletor technology in Dr.
Yi Li's lab. Then he did his postdoctoral research with Dr.
Mary Schuler at the University of Illinois, as a key player
in an NSF 2010 project, functional genomics of plant P450
genes. Dr. Duan has more than 25 publications appearing in
journals such as Plant Physiology, Arch. in Biochemistry
and Biophysics, Plant Biotechnology Journal, PROTEINS,
RNA, Photochemistry Reviews and Transgenic Research.
In this talk he will present his recent work and his point of
view on genetic engineering.
