Research:  Focused on revealing the key regulatory mechanisms of sugar accumulation in sorghum by the following methodologies:

1.)  Detecting the sugar accumulation patterns in the stems of both grain and sweet sorghums

2.)  Screening candidate genes linked to carbohydrate deposition, transportation and partition by using comparative transcriptome and small RNA sequencing

3.)  Investigating the function of several potential candidate miRNA genes in maize mutant lines based on the genomic collinearity between maize and sorghum

 

Interests:  Plant transformation, plant genetics, next generation sequencing
