研究方向 RESEARCH INTEREST

两性间的表型差异主要由差异表达基因(即性别偏爱性基因)引起。性别偏爱性基因中包含大量的长链非编码RNAlncRNA)基因。虽然已经发现一些性别偏爱性lncRNA具有调控性腺发育等重要功能,但是大部分仍然功能未知。本实验室以往的研究证实利用高通量表达数据注释非编码功能元件的可靠性,并揭示性别相关驱动力对动物基因组中非编码序列演化的作用。然而,尽管已发现一些性别偏爱性lncRNA可以调控性别发育,但尚有许多仍然功能未知。

目前本课题组的研究主要围绕性别偏爱性lncRNA基因展开,运用高通量测序技术,结合遗传学、分子生物学、发育生物学、演化生物学和生物信息学等手段,对斑马鱼、青鳉鱼、鸡、人等多物种基因组中性别偏爱性lncRNA基因进行系统地识别,并对其起源与演化机制、在性别发育中的功能以及对疾病发生的影响进行深入研究。其研究结果将有助于认识性别偏爱性lncRNA基因的功能,并对实施针对不同性别患者的个性化医疗方案这一目标的实现有重要的指导意义。

本实验室真诚欢迎热爱科学、擅长学习和乐于合作的本科生、研究生、博士生、博士后和其他科研人员的加入。

Sex dimorphism in phenotype is mainly caused by genes differentially expressed between sexes (called sex-biased genes). Many sex-biased genes are genes that encode long noncoding RNAs (lncRNA). Although some sex-biased lncRNAs have been found to regulate gonad development, the function of most lncRNAs are still unknown. Our previous study validated the transcriptome annotation of noncoding functional elements, and suggested the contribution of sex-related drives in the evolution of noncoding sequences in animal genomes. Although some sex-biased lncRNAs were found to be involved in sex development, the function of most sex-biased lncRNAs were still unknown. We thus focus on sex-biased lncRNAs, systematically identifying sex-biased lncRNAs in multiple animal species (including fruitfly, zebrafish, medaka, chicken, human, and etc.) with high-throughput sequencing techniques, and exploring their evolutionary mechanisms, functions in sex development, and potential effects on diseases. The implementation of our study will provide a solid foundation for revealing the function of sex-biased lncRNAs, and be important for precision medicine.

We sincerely welcome the participation of undergraduates, postgraduates, doctoral students, postdoctoral fellows and other scientific researchers who love science and are good at learning and cooperating.
