Research Associate, 2003-2005

Institute of Genetics and Developmental Biology, Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), Beijing, China

Research project: Comparative mapping, positional cloning and functional analysis of liguleless and auricleless genes in rice

·         Fine Mapped the rice liguleless and auricleless genes (lg, lg-T65, aur1) to a 50 kb DNA fragment region

·         Cloned and sequenced the candidate genes (lg, lg-T65, aur1) that are orthologs of lg1(liguleless1 gene) in maize

·         Complemented experiment and analyzed the functions of these candidate genes

·         Genome-wide Analysis of the GRAS gene family in Rice and Arabidoposis.

·         Assisted lab management

·         Trained Ph.D. students and postdoctoral fellows with the molecular biological techniques and experimental skills

Postdoctoral Research Associate, 2000-2002

Institute of Genetics and Developmental Biology, CAS, Beijing, China

Research project: Cloning, mapping and expression analysis of putative powdery mildew resistance genes and zinc finger protein gene in wheat

·         Developed populations for genetic mapping of the wheat powdery mildew resistance genes

·         Constructed and screened a cDNA library challenged with wheat powdery mildew pathogens

·        Isolated three full-length cDNA clones (TaMla-1, TaMla-2 and TaMla-3) encoded Mla-like proteins from a powdery mildew resistance line of wheat

·         Mapped the three genes to Chromosomes 1AL and 1BL and analyzed expression patterns of these genes.


Ph.D Research,1995-2000

·         Mapped dwarf gene Rht3 to the short arm of homologous group 4 (4A, 4B) in wheat with RFLP markers by southern bloting.

·        Identified 16 wheat-Roegneria. kamogi (a relative species with wheat, resistant disease of Fusarium graminea) alien chromosomal addition, substitution and translocation lines by RFLP markers.

AssociateProfessor, 1999-2000

Biotechnology Research Center, Anhui Agricultural University, Hefei, China

Studied on molecular biology,

·         Served as a principal investigator for two granted research programs from 1997 through 2000: ‘Molecular genetics and breeding of pre-harvest sprouting resistance in wheat’ and ‘Molecular markers and mapping of dwarf genes in wheat’

·         Taught two undergraduate courses: Molecular Biology and Cytoengineering
