Area of Interest

Research Interests mainly focus on deciphering molecular mechanism underpinning important honeybee biology and function of royal jelly for honeybee and human health promotion. Specifically, applying proteomics, genomics and gene editing tools to delineate the mechanism of development of embryo, hypopharyngeal glands, mandibular glands and so on.
