Research Interest:

    Our research interests include microbial functional genomics, the function of bacterial nucleotide second messenger molecules and non-coding RNA, as well as the global  regulation of bacterial metabolism. In recent years, the research direction has gradually expanded to include the aspects of synthetic biology and intestinal microorganisms.  The main research directions now include: (1) Starting from the basic theoretical research on the nucleotide second messenger molecules of c-di-GMP and c-di-AMP to reveal their regulatory mechanism on the physiological functions of bacteria to lay basis for the application of beneficial microorganisms and prevention and control of harmful microorganisms; (2) Studying the regulatory mechanism of non-coding RNA, such as anti-sense RNA, 6S RNA, and tmRNA, to lay the foundation for the transformation and utilization of bacteria; (3) Developing various synthetic biological regulatory elements; (4) Studying related intestinal microbial flora and colorectal cancer.
