research interests

we analyzed the big agricultural omics data and identified some major genomic signatures associated with interactions between diet, the digestive system, and metabolism in ruminants, and managed to discover the key economic genotype-phenotype association in peking duck with one mutation increased body size by 15% and feed efficiency by 6%. through innovative bioinformatics analysis, we first reported the use of optical mapping profiling for animal genome assembly and gwas analysis using structural variations. we also contributed to the deciphering of the genetic heritage of worldwide cattle from five distinct pedigrees, and revealed a series of adaptive evolutions. we have published 12 manuscripts as first or senior authorship in journals such as science, nature biotechnology, nature communications, and cell research. our current major area of interest is focused on ruminant livestock and their foregut fermentation system, the rumen, which represents the world’s extraordinarily efficient stomach using microbial flora to ferment the feed. we try to reveal the genetic basis of the rumen and its microbial ecosystem, and finally develop a bionic machine of artificial rumen combined with milk reactor as facilitating the conversion of lignocellulose-rich plant materials, of low value in the human diet, to high value animal protein and lipid.
