Research Group of Molecular Genetics of Medicinal Plant focuses on studying the molecular mechanism of medicinal plants (licorice and wolfberry) in a Resource-Research-Resolution (3R mode system) manner. the group also study the directional regulation of plants secondary metabolites in order to sustainably utilize medicinal plants. The research topics include: 1) collection and evaluation of Licorice and wolfberry wild resource; 2) the molecular biosynthetic and regulatory mechanism of secondary metabolites; 3) the molecular mechanism of environmental factors on the secondary metabolites accumulation; 4) cultivation and creation of medicinal cultivar(s) with health care function; 5) security and effectiveness evaluation of medicinal plants resources.
