       Research Interests:

      Our Biotechnology & Interdisciplinary Research Lab aims to use interdisciplinary strategy to study Translational Control, Plant Defense and Precision Agriculture.

       We are focusing on two basic biological questions. One is the Bio-triangle relationship (i.e., plant-pathogen-endophyte). Overusing pesticides and fertilizers and gaining resistant traits must ruin the harmonious bio-triangle relationship. We are working on the molecular mechanisms of the Arabidopsis-Pseudomonas-entophytic bacteria bio-triangle interaction model to help engineer disease-resistant crops. The other question is the Trait-triangle relationship (i.e., defense-yield-quality). High yield usually compromises crop defense and quality. We are working on the molecular mechanisms of balancing the trait-triangle relationship to meet the increasing requirement for high-quality crops.

       To address those questions, we are developing novel Biotechniques by introducing different disciplines, including omics and information technology, microfluidic technology, synthetic chemistry and biology.

       我们组建了生物技术交叉研究实验室,利用多学科交叉融合研究:翻译调控(Translational Control)、植物抗病分子机制(Plant Immunity)和精准作物改良(Precision Agriculture)等。

       我们关注两个生物学问题(一)、植物、病原和内生菌之间的关系(Bio-triangleplant-pathogen-endophyte:农药、化肥的使用以及抗病性状的获得极大可能破坏三者关系。我们以拟南芥-假单胞病原菌-内生细菌为模型,研究发病前后三者之间互作的分子机制,为抗病性状的优化提供理论支撑。(二)、作物抗性、产量和品质之间的关系(Trait-triangle: defense-yield-quality):长期对产量性状的极致追求导致了抗性和品质性状的丢失。理解平衡三者关系的分子机制将有助于满足日益增长的高品质生活需求。
