Major Research Achievements (2009-2013)
1. The Construction of the Tree of Life
  1) Phylogenetics and phylogenomics of the Bambusoideae (Gramineae).
  The bamboo subfamily (Bambusoideae), the rice subfamily (the Erhartoideae) and the Pooideae (to which wheat belongs) are closely related and compose the BEP clade in the grass family. The Bambusoideae includes three major tribes, the woody Bambuseae from the pantropics, the herbac... More Content>>
