Achievement

The scientific achievements of my team are mainly on identification of functional genes related to rice yield and analysis of transgenic plants. We employed various approaches such as genetics and biochemistry etc to dissect the important agricultural traits of rice, and these works led to the identification of rice genes with agricultural importance. Using the forward genetics approach, we generated and genetically identified around 666 rice mutants with agricultural traits such as pollen defect, changed seed number etc. Based map-based cloning approach he cloned and identified eight crucial genes such as TDR (Tapetum Degeneration Retardation), FON4 (Floral Organ Number) and REP1 (RETARDED PALEA1) for controlling the formation of pollen and spikelet/flower in rice.
TDR is a newly found putative basic helix-loop-helix (bHLH) protein in rice, which is proved to be a positive regulator of tapetal programme cell death (PCD) by my team. Rice evolved unique inflorescence and flower morphology diverging from eudicots and other monocots. We revealed the molecular mechanism regulating meristem development by a CLV3/ESR-related (CLE) motif signaling regulator, FON4, and fon4 mutants showed abnormal enlargement of the embryonic and vegetative shoot apical meristems (SAMs) and the inflorescence and floral meristems. Also I demonstrated that floral zygomorphy along the lemma-palea (Le/Pa) axis in rice is partially or indirectly determined by REP1 which regulates palea identity and development. This evolutionary developmental work suggests that a common conserved mechanism controlling floral zygomorphy by CYC-like genes exists in both eudicots and the grasses.Based on these genetic works, I and my team developed several rice male sterile lines for production of hybrid rice with higher yield.
To promote the development and safety assessment of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) in China, my team characterized the molecular features of more than twenty GMOs in China, and developed the effective approach for analysis of GMOs and their derived products. Also nine methods have been validated at the international/national levels.
