Project Description and Objectives

As more and more transgenic crops such as maize and soybeans have been approved and consumed as foods and feeds, people have become increasingly concerned about the safety of transgenic organisms. Molecular characterization of transgenic organisms is the basis of safety assessments of transgenic organisms. We are developing new detection methods to identify the changes that occur at genomic, transcriptomics, proteomics and metabolic levels. The changes will be compared to the changes between the transgenic line and non-transgenic control line and between the transgenic line and conventional cultivated lines, laying a foundation for safety assessments.

Eligibility Requirements

  • Applicants must have basic knowledge of biology.

  • Experience in research in biology would be in advantage.

Main Tasks

The student will be involved in all stages of the project:

1)Design an experimental scheme

2)Perform experiments

3)Analyze experimental results

4)Write the experiment report

The student will be supervised by a professor and a PhD student.
