  Research Interest

  Research direction is quantitative annotation framework for plant genome, with oil-related crop genome project as the main application. The research team is currently developing new bioinformatic tools for genome analysis, focusing on machine learning-based annotation of plant genomes, cleaning and integration of public data, optimization of annotation pipeline, and database construction. In addition, the team is studying on several genome researches for oil crops(including tung tree, castor, sesame, etc.), involving the reference sequence construction and population studies. We expect to dig the genetic basic for agronomic and species  characteristics to provide information for molecular breeding. The wet platform in out lab focuses on the construction and optimization of a variety of micro-scale DNA or single-cell NGS libraries.
