BIOLOGICAL NITROGEN FIXATION AND LEGUME BIOLOGY

生物固氮和豆科生物学

      
       王学路课题组依托河南大学“作物逆境适应与改良”国家重点实验室,建立了“生物固氮与豆科生物学”研究团队。本团队围绕基础生物学和绿色农业发展中的重要前沿科学问题,以大豆、花生、百脉根、拟南芥和根瘤菌为主要研究系统,采用多组学、遗传学、生化和分子生物学、细胞和发育生物学、生物信息学和结构生物学等多学科理论和方法,研究根瘤菌与植物的共生固氮机制,激素与环境互作调控植物生长发育和逆境适应的机制,以及豆科作物的精准改良等。

       本团队拥有完善的生化和分子生物学实验平台、高效的大豆稳定转化平台、近千份栽培与野生大豆核心种质GWAS群体、成熟的生物信息学平台、数百平方米的植物培养室和完善的田间试验基地等。
      
本团队围绕“生物固氮与豆科生物学”研究以下主要方向:
       【1】豆科植物与根瘤菌互作及其共生固氮的分子机制;
       【2】豆科作物重要农艺性状的分子、遗传和驯化机制;
       【3】基因编辑以及豆科作物精准设计育种。
       我们长期热诚欢迎有不同学科背景的青年才俊加盟团队实现梦想

       Wang's lab of biological nitrogen fixation and legume biology was set up in the State Key Laboratory of Crop Stress Adaptation and Improvement. Our research team uses soybean, peanut, Lotus japonicus, Arabidopsis and rhizobia as the main research systems, and various methods of multi-omics, genetics, biochemistry and molecular biology, cell biology, developmental biology, bioinformatics, and structural biology, to study important basic scientific questions and applied questions in sustainable agriculture. These include the molecular mechanisms of the legume-rhizobium interactions and symbiotic nitrogen fixation, as well as their response to environmental stimuli and various hormones (brassinosteroids, strigolactones, abscisic acid, and auxin), and their applications in green agriculture. Meanwhile, we also aim to the precise improvement of legume varieties by molecular design.
       We have set up several excellent research platforms, including equipment for biochemical, molecular, and developmental biology, a stable and efficient soybean transformation facility, more than 1000 accessions of cultivated and wild soybean core collection for GWAS studies, highly-configured bioinformatics platform, artificial-controlled culture chambers with total area of hundreds of square meters, and agricultural field for research trial.
       Focusing on "biological nitrogen fixation and legume biology", our team has established solid foundation and obtained excellent progresses in the following research areas:
[1] The molecular mechanisms of legume-rhizobium interaction, nodule development, and nitrogen fixation.
[2] The genetic, molecular, and developmental basis, and the domestication mechanisms underlying the key agricultural traits in soybean.
[3] Gene editing and molecular breeding in soybean.
       We always welcome young talents with different academic backgrounds to join our team and to pursue your dreams.
