On May 4, a delegation of Umeå Plant Science Centre, Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences, led by Prof. Harry Wu and 2 other professors, and made up of 7 post-doctoral researchers and 9 PhDs, visited CAF for academic exchanges. They attended a seminar together with Mr. Lu Mengzhu, research fellow and director of state key laboratory of genetic seed breeding of tree species, Mr. Lu Wenming, director of Division of International Cooperation, Mr. Qi Liwang, research fellow, and Mr. Wang Dong, director for human resources and education, Research Institute of Forestry. The seminar was hosted by Mr. Wang Junhui, research fellow and deputy director for management office of state key laboratory of genetic seed breeding of tree species.

During the seminar, history and achievement of cooperation between the two sides were reviewed, and basic information of each side was introduced. Prof. Harry Wu introduced the basic information of the Plant Breeding Platform of Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences. He also shared his purpose of visiting, to learn China’s modern seed breeding and research in bio-techniques, and to look for possibilities of bilateral cooperation in the future. Mr. Lu Mengzhu, Mr. Qi Liwang andMr. Wang Junhui, research fellow gave academic lectures respectively,Progress on research of trans-genetic technologies of tree species in China, Status quo of research on embryogenesis of tree species body cell in CAF, and Achievements in research of seed breeding of tree species in CAF. The two sides also discussed on gene editing and selective breeding of whole genome of tree species.

Related staff from Division of International Cooperation and state key laboratory of genetic seed breeding of tree species attended the seminar.

Faculty and students from Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences also paid a visit to the state key laboratory of genetic seed breeding of tree species, the research greenhouse and the timber specimen room. (Words by Shu Huaqin, Management Office of Key Laboratories. Photos by the CAF Office)
