National Key Laboratory of Crop Genetic Improvement

Research Interest:

Exploring new appraoches and technologies for rice transformation.

Transgenic breeding including inrect resistance rice, herbicide resistance rice, high photosynthetic efficiency rice.

Our group devote to improving important agronomical traits of rice including insect-resistance, herbicide resistance, nutritional quality, and high efficiency of photosynthesis mainly by using genetic manipulation strategies and developing new transformation technologies and approaches. The Bt rice Huahui No.1 and Bt Shanyou 63 developed by our group have acquired safety certificate from Chinese government, which are the only two rice events obtained the safety certification in China so far. Other important Bt rice events such as T1C-19, T2A-1, and RJ-5 are also under the evaluation and are going to apply for safety certification. In our recently work, several novel green tissue-specific synthetic promoters, cis-regulatory elements (Wang at al., 2015), and bidirectional promoters (Wang et al., 2016) were identified and characterized, which are expected to have high applicability in genetic engineering.
