Research Interests:

CRISPR / cpf1 RNP gene editing technology in microalgae synthetic biology and identification and evaluation of high quality algae species.

CRISPR / cpf1 RNP method is to transfer cpf1 protein and gRNA into microalgae after forming a complex in vitro. It is a more ideal gene editing system because of its higher gene editing efficiency, lower Miss target effect, and no risk of DNA integration. This DNA free plant genome editing method can avoid the potential risk of integrating exogenous DNA fragments into the genome and help to realize safer microalgae transgenic products to microalgae synthetic biology and identification and evaluation of high quality algae species.
