Yang Bai studies the microbes that are associated with healthy plant growth.

New techniques in molecular biology enable him to explore an incredibly diverse microbiome. A better understanding of this microbiome will be essential to the development of sustainable agriculture and future food security.

Yang joined CEPAMS from the world-renowned Max Planck Institute for Plant Breeding Research in Cologne in 2016, the first of six CEPAMS Group Leaders appointed in 2016/17.

He has already been awarded prestigious ‘1,000 Talents’ status in China and expanded his group to 12 scientists.
