Research Interest

(1) Physiological and biochemical systems in insects/bacteria vulnerable to photo-activated synthetic drug/pesticide or natural plant defense chemicals, with especial focus on the use of new genomic tools;
(2) Insect growth regulation by applying of molecular biology and biochemistry to identify new proteins in insect as potential drug/pesticide targets for crop protection;
(3) DNA mutation and repairing as well as apoptosis signal pathways in insect/human cell lines vulnerable to new drugs and microbial secondary metabolites;
(4) Proteomic responses and Genetic adaptability of the insect midgut and immune defense system as well as the resistance selection in insects/bacteria to drug challenges.
