Research Interest

I have strong background on the rapid identification, infection process and technologies for the forecasting and controlling measures of bunt disease and wheat rusts, which will provide the theoretical support and technical reserves for the successfully control the disease. And, I also do some work on the interaction of maize smut with the anther's development, I found the pathogen could reprograms cell proliferation in maize anthers. Up to now, I published more than 100  papers, ten patents, four chapters in four books, honored of “The 13th women scientists award” in China and “New-Star of Science and Technology ” in Beijing.
