In nature, root and leaf of healthy plants are enriched specific microbial community (microbiota). These microbes and plants form a stable equilibrium, and participate in many biological process of plants. In our laboratory, based on high throughput microbial culturing, metagenomic sequencing and synthesis microbiota technology, we focus on potentail function of microbiota in plant disease resistance, nutrient absorption, growth and development.
1. Roles of microbiota in crop nutrition and disease resistance
2. How microbiota reshapes plant transcriptome and epigenome?
3. Sequencing and analysis methods of metagenome and metatranscriptome
