    High-redshift quasars (HRQs) are important for cosmology and galaxy studies. Recently, an international research group led by Prof. AN Tao from Shanghai Astronomical Observatory (SHAO) of Chinese Academy of Sciences has studied radio-loud HRQs, and found one promising target CGRaBS J0906+6930 (hereafter J0906+6930) in the early Universe.
