Based on the abundant resources of medicinal and economic plants in Yunnan Province, the research area and goals of Bioinformatics Group are to conduct functional genomics research of non-model plants based on high-throughput sequencing data analysis and molecular biology experiments by using bioinformatics and systems biology methods. Our main research contents include:
- We are engaged in the design of algorithms for functional genomics research of non-model plants, the construction of computing and analysis platforms, and the establishment of databases;
- In terms of basic researches, we mainly analyze the differences of some important molecular pathways between the non-model plants and the well-known model plants;
- In terms of applied researches, we mainly studies the key functional genes and related molecular pathways of important medicinal plants and economic plants with application prospects.
