1.Molecular genetics and genetic Engineering: Focused on addressing the genetic or molecular basis for biosynthesis of unusual fatty acids and storage lipids in developing seeds and oleaginous cells. We try to address the molecular mechanism of key lipid genes from cDNA, transcription factor, miRNA, imprinted gene, protein enzyme and environmental factors. Also, we develop SSR, SNP markers and high throughout sequencing to investigate the genetic variations among germplasms and population level, facilitating QTL mapping GWAS of interesting traits and molecular breeding in oil seed plants.
2. Epigenetics and adaptation: Based on the gene imprinting and response of DNA or histone methylation to stress, we try to dissect the potential mechanisms underlying genomic imprinting, the DNA or histone methylation, gene expression and phenotypic response in plants at the cell and molecular levels.
