Vice President Jianguo Chen delivered a welcome speech, on behalf of the University, welcomed the participating experts to attend the meeting, and presented the appointment letter of honorary director of the academic committee of Key Laboratory of Molecular Biophysics to Academician Zihe Rao.
Academician Zihe Rao, Academician Tao Xu, Professor Ruiming Xu, Professor Baoliang Song and Professor Youming Lu delivered excellent academic reports. During the epidemic period, Professor Zihe Rao concentrated his team efforts to analyze the structure of sars-cov-2 replication and transcription complex in a few months, and published a series of papers in nature, science and other journals, achieved world-famous achievements. Academician Tao Xu's team has made breakthroughs in software and hardware of super-resolution photoelectric correlation imaging system. Professor Ruiming Xu introduced the mechanism of Drosha enzyme processing PRI miRNA. Professor Baoliang Song gave a report entitled diet and cholesterol metabolism. Professor Youming Lu introduced the structure and signal transduction of key synaptic proteins encoding memory. In addition, Prof. Jianfeng Liu, Prof. Cong Ma and Prof. Yu Xue respectively reported the latest research results, and conducted in-depth discussion with experts attending the meeting.

Academician Tao Xu gave a report entitled “super-resolution photoelectric correlation imaging system”
In the second stage of the seminar, the experts discussed the construction and development of the Key Laboratory of molecular biophysics of the Ministry of education and the discipline of biological science. They put forward a plan to jointly apply for the National Key Laboratory by the relevant disciplines of the whole university, and put forward practical suggestions on the purchase of freezing electron microscope. Professor Ruiming Xu is willing to provide long-term technical support for the training of cryoelectron microscope professionals and instrument maintenance in our university.
After the seminar, a signing ceremony was held between the key laboratory and Guangzhou Bioisland laboratory. Professor Jianfeng Liu, director of the Key Laboratory of molecular biophysics, Ministry of education, and Li Zhonghua, Secretary of Guangzhou Bioisland laboratory, respectively signed the agreement and took a group photo with the participating experts.
