Research Specialization: We are very interested in insect adaptation from molecular, cellular to organism and population levels by using molecular biological and genomic methods. We have three research aspects, covering ieco-genomics, cold tolerance, and chemical ecology and behavior of insects, especially the locust and leafminers as model system. About 90 research papers were published in international peer-review journals, including the well-known journals: Science, Nature Communications, PNAS, Annual Review of Entomology, PLoS Genetics, PLoS Pathogens, Genome Biology, Cell Research etc.
