Interpretive Summary: Mike was one of the leading scientists in agricultural research internationally. The significant contributions he made to wheat linkage map construction, comparative genomics among cereals, and the cloning genes of agronomic importance made him prominent in wheat genetics and agricultural biotechnology research. He was also tireless in offering advice to numerous national and international agricultural research institutions, in educating and training students and visiting scientists from every corner of the world, and in promoting international collaborations. Here we provide an outline on the contributions Mike made to agricultural biotechnology research in China.
