AWARDS & SCHOLARSHIPS
Academic Scholarship for excellent graduate students, Beijing Normal University, 2009
Outstanding graduates, Beijing Normal University, 2007
Responsible for the project 'comparative analysis of transposable elements in sequenced plant genomes' (Mar. 2009-present)
Based on the genome-wide identification and classification of transposable elements in sequenced angiosperm genomes, we applied comparative techniques on these datasets to infer the evolutionary relationship and dynamics of the so-called 'junk DNA' among these species.
Responsible for the project 'ecological analysis of transposable elements in sequenced plant genomes' (Oct. 2009-present)
Using the transposable element data identified in sequenced plant genomes, we tested the neutral model in community ecology and estimated the neutral parameters of the transposable element community in the genome ecosystems.
Participated in the project of 'genome annotation of the cucumber, Cucumis sativus L.' (Dec. 2007-Dec. 2008)
I focused on the prediction of RNA genes and the identification and classification of various kinds of repeats in the newly sequenced cucumber genome. Finally we developed a combined pipeline for eukaryote genome annotation, and also applied it in the new cabbage and watermelon draft genome.
'Comparative analysis of genetic variation between retropseudogenes and their parental genes in the human genome' (Mar. 2007 - Jun. 2007)
My work is mainly on the retrieving and analyzing the SNPs distribution in the matching regions between human retropseudogenes and their parental genes.
