XU Jian (email@example.com) currently serves as Director of Single-Cell Center, Director of BioEnergy Division and Assistant Director General at CAS-QIBEBT. He obtained B.S in Biotechnology from Peking University in 1997, and M.S. in Computer Science and PhD in Biochemistry under Jeffrey Gordon from Washington University in St. Louis in 2003. He has been the founding Director of Single-Cell Center, CAS-QIBEBT. Single-Cell Center consists of over 100 specialists from single-cell genomics, synthetic biology, microfluidics, bioinformatics, optical engineering and precision instrumentation. We have introduced concepts for single-cell metabolic phenomes such as ‘ramanome’ and ‘meta-ramanome’. We invented the Single-cell Analysis Instrument Series, including Ramanome/meta-ramanome Intelligent Analyzer, Raman-Activated Cell Sorter, RACS-Seq, FlowRACS, EasySort, etc. We develop single-cell and metagenomics big-data software such as Microbiome Search Engine (www.mse.ac.cn) and (MP-G)n. These innovations are supporting screening of cell factories, bioresource mining, marine ecological monitoring, diagnosis of chronic diseases, precision antibiotic administration, cancer drug screening, etc. Moreover, the center develops microalgal synthetic biology (using Nannochloropsis oceanica as a model) for scalable CO2 fixation and photosynthetic production of nutriceuticals and biofuels. Jian has published over 140 papers on leading journals such as Science, Cell Host & Microbe, Nature Communications, Science Advances, PNAS, ISME J, mBio, Anal Chem, mSystems etc, with over 12,000 citations (H-index 52). He is a senior editor of mSystems. His contribution was recognized by a number of career awards from NSFC, MOST and CAS, including National Distinguished Young Scholars Award (2014), National Young-Scientist Award for Science and Technology (2016) and VCANBIO Award for Biosciences and Medicine (2016).
