My project focuses on the discovery and utilization of genes for important agronomic traits in sweet potato, as well as the molecular regulator mechanism of plant growth, development and environmental adaptability, involving in many research fields such as biochemistry and molecular biology, genetics, plant physiology, cell biology, and so on. The relative researches have been funded by NSFC and Natural Science Foundation of Guangdong Province, and the research papers have been published in the international journals such as Nat Commun, Plant Cell, Mol Plant, Front Plant Sci, Plant Physiol.
