Research Area
Since 1984, she has been mainly working on vegetable resources and breeding emphasized in cole crops genetics and breeding, including biotechnology technique e.g. microspore culture, transformation, molecular marker, etc. The research of gene cloning on important cabbage characteristics are also carried out. Taking charge of or participate in more than 20 project, e.g. 863 project, the National Natural Science Foundation, etc.
