My research interests include fish genetics and breeding, statistical genetics and bioinformatics in freshwater fish. I have 10 years research experience in inland fisheries breeding and culture (common carp and tilapia), data management, algorithm and software development, molecular biology, training and education. I have developed three new licensed strains and reviewed many papers in food chemistry for the Journal of Yangzhou University (Agricultural and Life Science Edition), Acta Hydrobiologica Sinica and others.
