Speech Title: Methods to decipher complex plant genomes
Recursive polyploidization has affected the origination, diversification, and evolution of plants. Complex nature of plant genomes often led to insufficient analysis of their sequences. Methods, algorithms, and statistics are developed to decipher the complexity of plant genomes by comparing different genomes. Deconvoluting the complex nature of plant genomes shed light on their formation and structures, and the evolution of ancestral cell karyotypes and chromosomes, and make it possible to reconstruct evolutionary trajectories of chromosomes.
Dean of the School of Science, North China University of Technology. He is mainly engaged in the research of genomics and biological big data, and has achieved a number of outstanding original achievements, especially in the theory of eukaryotic chromosome number reduction, the origin of B chromosomes, and the influence of polyploidy on the formation and evolution of genome functions. He puts forward the gold standard for plant genome complexity analysis (academic journal topic review) and listed in the world's top scientists in genetics and molecular biology.
