What I work with

2011 I started my postdoc research in the Pheromone Group. My major research interest is to explore the functional evolution of the multigene family of lepidopteran pheromone receptors. A selection of representative species that use distinctly different type of pheromones are involved in my current studies.

My background

I did my PhD in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at the Institute of Zoology, Chinese Academy of Sciences in Beijing (2007-2010). In my thesis I studied the pheromone receptor genes in two moth species, Helicoverpa armigera and Helicoverpa assulta, based on degenerate primer cloning and in vitro gene expression in Xenopus laevis oocytes system coupled with two-electrode voltage clamp recording.
