Dr Weilan Shao has completed her PhD degree in 1993 from the University of Georgia, USA; she has worked as a distinguished professor of a few universities in China. Her research mission is to develop feasible and economicly effective approaches for renewing bioenergy. Shaoâ€™s group have discovered the repressor/operator system coupling glycolysis and fermentation pathways, and the regulation mechanism of thermophilic ethanol fermentation. Dr Shao also invents new techniques for lignocellulase production and modification, including pHsh gene expression system (US patent), in situ gene random mutagenesis (US patent), and gfa selection marker for the bio-safety of gene modification.
