Research projects and focus
The projects are focused on （1） key role of grasses in epidemics in the oversummering area of the wheat stripe rust pathogen （The National Natural Science Fund）， （2） sexual reproduction and virulence variation of the wheat stripe rust fungus （the project-973）， and （3） sexual hybridization and virulence variation of the rust pathogen （New Century Excellent Talents in University）。

My research interest is mainly involved in virulence variation and sexual reproduction of the wheat stripe rust fungus, and role of sexual host of the rust pathogen in epidemics and control of wheat stripe rust via to managing sexual host.
