Research Area

Our research is mainly focused on the plant response mechanism to biotic and abiotic stresses. Recently, we have studied the function and the molecular mechanism of the differential proteins gene of rice induced by Xooc Infection. At the same time, we have also studied the response of the molecular mechanism to abiotic stress of two novel transcription factors. We hope the genes can be used at the crop of genetic improvement.

We are also interested in transgenic plants and genetic engineering vaccine of fowl and livestock epizootic.
