  Research Interests:

  1. Our group is mainly to work on oilseed and Arabidopsis in response to biotic and abiotic stress (drought, salinity). Especially, we are focusing on dissecting and clarifying the molecular mechanism of plant immune response mediated by MAPK cascades and WRKY transcription factor as well as its integrated reactive oxygen species, jasmonic acid and salicylic acid signaling pathway. Through our study, we aim at identifying novel candidate genes which could contribute to improve the defense response of oilseed rape.

  2. Our second research interest is focusing on the plant development biology (seed development etc).
