Research Focus:

His group is interested in identifying protein and gene changes in response to environmental stresses and to integrate the data into regulative networks in response to the stresses, and research and development activities and industrialization of resource plants. Since 2002, 10 patents have been obtained and more than 60 articles have been published, with 50 articles Indexed by SCI and 40 articles as the ?rst or corresponding author.


1. Isolation and functional characterization of the genes resistant to stress.

2. Proteomic analysis of plant responses to stress.

3. R & D biotechnology and industrialization of resource plant.
