Research Interest/Areas
In nature, healthy plants interact with diverse microbial communities mainly in roots and leaves. These microbes contain huge amount of functional genes and play important roles for plant growth and health. In our laboratory, we focus on plant microbiota’s functions in disease resistance and nutrient uptake by metagenomic sequencing, high throughput microbial cultivation and reconstitution.
