Research on Gossypium


Actually, Gossypium is a kind of perennial woody plant. Our institute is located in the southernmost point of Hainan island, with particularly favorable natural conditions to carry out research of cotton. We started the cotton fiber development and genetics research, cotton functional gene analysis and genetic research of transgenic cotton in the year of 2000. The main research directions are:

1.      Genotype genetic research on cotton fiber development

2.      Cloning and molecular marker of cotton resistance gene

3.      Cloning and expression analysis of cotton functional gene

4.      Phenotype and genetics of cotton transgenic characteristics
