Research Experiences and Results
I have registered in NAU as a master student and PhD student from 2001 to 2006. My specialty is
plant genetics and breeding. I have taken many courses related to molecular biology and got high
scores in these courses. Furthermore, I have mastered the basic molecular biology experiment
technology. Under the guidance of my supervisor, I have passed my dissertation entitled “Genetic
Dissection on the Basis of Heterosis in an Elite Cotton Hybrid XZM2”. During the five years, I have
carried out experiments on molecular markers such as SSR, RAPD, SRAP and AFLP. Using data of F8
and F9 generations of RILs derived from elite cotton hybrid Xiangzamian2 planted in two years and
two locations, I mapped QTLs for plant architecture, yield and yield-component and fiber quality traits.
Consequently, an Immortalized F2 population was developed by intercrossing of the RILs and it was
planted in two years to further detect genetic basis of heterosis. Meanwhile, I have studied molecular
mechanism of heterosis by using method of DDRT-PCR and DNA methylation using materials of
Xiangzamian2 and its two parents in different growing periods. In total, my dissertation included four
main parts:
1. QTL mapping of yield and yield-component, fiber quality and plant architecture traits in an RIL
2. QTL mapping in the immortalized F2 population and genetic mechanism of heterosis.
3. Differential gene expression patterns in leaves between XZM2 and its two parents
4. DNA methylation of XZM2 and its two parents
