Dear Sir/Madam:

I, as a visiting scholar from China, have been working or studying in USA
for over
two years. Now I am posting this message for application of graduate
assistantship
in plant genetics and molecular biology. I am perticularly interested in the
tissue 
culture, gene cloning, DNA marker and plant transformation, but not limit of
these,
every research field related to plant genetics or molecular biology is OK
for me. any
country is OK for me also. Please  look at my CV and academic transcripts in
the 
following.
