Lianyong Wang

I obtained my Ph.D. from the Graduate School of Biostudies in Kyoto University, where I was mentored by Hideya Fukuzawa in characterizing a chloroplast calcium-binding protein in the regulation of carbon-concentrating mechanism in Chlamydomonas reinhardtii.

I joined the Jonikas lab in 2017 to investigate the localization of predicted chloroplast proteins and identify their interactors using a new high-throughput fluorescent tagging strategy. Besides, to satisfy my interests in pyrenoid formation, I am working on a potential component of pyrenoid as well.

In my free time I enjoy hiking, reading, and watching sport events.
