Research Interest:

My research interest is Flower color diversity, Molecular Biology and Transgenic research of ornamental plant. Texture is an important ornamental characteristic of flowers. If petal texture could be changed through the biotechnology, it is a breakthrough for the flower breeding. The contents of our research include analyzing the types and the optical characteristics of petal textures. Based on observed results, an optical model will be established to best understanding the optical mechanism of various petal textures. In addition,Eustoma grandiflormthat owns rich types of petal texture is used to study the molecular mechanism of epidermal cell shape affecting petal texture.
