  人员组成/Personnel Structure

  植物基因组研究中心由2支中国农业科学院创新团队组成。中心现有课题组9个,工作人员50余名,其中博士生导师10名,研究员10名,副研究员2名,高级农艺师1名,在站博士后13名, 其中国家重大人才工程入选者3名,深圳市高层次人才9名。

  The center is consisted of two innovation teams of Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences (CAAS), including nine research teams. The center have 10 research fellows, 2 associate research fellows,1 senior agronomist, 13 post-doctoral and about 38 other researchers and technical staffs. Among them, 1 member received the National Science Fund for Distinguished Young Scholars Award, 2 members were known as Leading Scholar of Ten thousand Plan, and 9 research scientists were honored the High-level Talents of Shenzhen.




  Genomic technologies create varieties, and varieties improve life quality:Crop and horticulture plants germplasms collection and re-sequencing; Cloning genes that involved in the formation or regulating of important agronomic traits, systematically dissecting their functions and genetic regulatory networks; apply research achievements for new crop varieties breeding.


  研究方向/Research Areas


  A. 针对水稻粒型、品质、耐盐、氮高效、种子休眠等重要农艺性状开展重要基因克隆及功能研究;克隆了调控水稻粒型的重要基因GL7和TGW2,并解析了其作用机制;克隆了同时提高水稻产量和氮素利用效率的基因OsNR2,并揭示了其作用机制。利用大量自然变异群体和遗传群体,通过数量遗传学分析,鉴定了大量控制水稻籽粒外观品质和加工品质以及植物抗盐能力的关键基因;成功创制了适于室内大规模种植的新型水稻材料“小薇”;克隆了控制种子休眠的基因RDO5。

  B. 以植物细胞器(叶绿体和线粒体)和细胞核为研究对象,开展基因组变异,细胞器突变机理和细胞核质互作的研究。我们发现被子植物物种具有复杂的线粒体基因组构造,并以植物线粒体rpl5基因为研究对象,对该基因在线粒体和细胞核基因中的拷贝及转移机制进行详尽的研究。

  Identifying key genes controlling important agronomic traits in crops: A. Discovered that GL7 and TGW2 contribute to rice grain size diversity;OsNR2 improve rice yield and nitrogen use efficiency,dissected its molecular mechanism on regulating grain size. Using genetic materials such as mutants, re-sequencing germplasms and genetic populations, we have discovered key genes contributing to appearance quality and processing quality of rice grains, salt tolerance by quantitative genetic analysis. Characterized a new ideal germplasm, “Xiaowei” for rice indoor research system. Cloned a novel gene Reduced Dormancy 5 (RDO5), controlling seed dormancy.

  B. Investigate the genome variation mechanism of both plant organelles (chloroplast and mitochondria) and their own nucleus genome, as well as the cytonuclear interaction and organelle mutation. We reported that angiosperm species could contain the complex mitochondrial genome structure than certain bacterial genome. the rpl5 gene in mitochondria was investigated in 90 species and their outgroup species in grass family, the copy and transfer mechanism within organelle and nucleus have been elucidated.


  2)植物基因表达调控机制研究:开展重要作物基因表达调控机制研究,为作物分子育种提供资源。A. 开展基因表达的染色质水平调控新机制和表观遗传调控植物生长发育和环境适应的功能机制研究,先后发现了多个参与DNA甲基化调控和转座子沉默的新基因,完善了RNA介导的DNA甲基化(RdDM)通路,并揭示了转座子沉默的动态调节机制。B. 探索了植物内质网对小RNA生物合成的作用,建立了玉米小RNA随机过表达的功能基因组研究体系,优化了玉米翻译调控研究的技术体系;鉴定了miRNA396-OsGRF4模块对水稻穗长和籽粒大小的调控,为水稻分子育种提供了新资源。C. 研究真核生物小分子RNA以及转录组RNA甲基化修饰m6A对基因的转录后水平调控作用:近期揭示了m6A结合蛋白YTHDF2在人类细胞中通过促进转录本RNA的降解参与细胞周期调控的分子机制。

  Plant gene expression and regulation: Revealed the importance of endoplasmic reticulum on small RNA functionality; A. Study the fundamental mechanisms of chromatin-based gene regulation,and the biological roles of epigenetic regulation in plant development and environmental adaptation. Our findings improved the understanding of RNA-directed DNA methylation (RdDM) and revealed the dynamic control of transcriptional silencing. B. Established new functional genomics system for random overexpression of plant small RNAs; Found miRNA396-OsGRF4 modules, regulating the size of rice grains and grain yield, with possible applications in breeding high-yield rice varieties. C. Small RNAs and RNA modifications, such as m6A, play important roles in gene regulation at the post-transcriptional level in eukaryotes. We recently revealed that the m6A reader protein YTHDF2 plays important roles in cell cycle regulation by promoting the mRNA turnover in human cells.



  Whole-genome Designed Breeding:Identifying favorable genes for the target traits such as high yield, high grain quality (appearance, cooking and eating), high nitrogen use efficiency, low accumulation of heavy metals, disease and pest resistance, abiotic stress tolerance (drought, salt and alkali, extreme low and high temperature), lodging resistance using multiple omics. Establishing rice whole-genome designed breeding technical system to develop new variety with safety and delicacy, nutrition and health, green and efficiency, wide adaptation and lodging resistance through optimizing favorable genes based on high yield level of the present rice variety. Focusing on the xian rice production areas of South China and the middle and lower reaches of Yangtze River, a self-bred thermo-sensitive genic male sterile line, Chun6S is widely testcrossed with high quality rice in South China and self-bred high quality restorer lines, to develop hybrid rice with ideal plant type, high grain quality, high yield, disease and lodging resistance and wide adaptation. So far, many elite varieties (Guangliangyou7217, Chunliangyou534, Chunliangyouhuazan, Shenliangyou121, Zhongshen 1) have been released by marker-assisted selection.
