A new associate editor is joining GENETICS. We’re excited to welcome Bo Zhang to the editorial team.
Bo Zhang is a Professor in Developmental Biology and Genetics at Peking University in China. She received her BS and PhD degrees in Cell Biology from Peking University in 1989 and 1995, respectively, and pursued her post-doctoral training in the Institute of Molecular Biology at University of Zürich, Switzerland. She has been a visiting scholar at University of Wisconsin, Madison, as well as University of California, Los Angeles. Her group is interested in dissecting molecular and cellular mechanisms of vertebrate development through genetic approaches, using zebrafish as the major model with a focus on heart development and regeneration, as well as on developing genome editing techniques in zebrafish based on engineered endonucleases, including TALEN and CRISPR/Cas9.
