Research Mainly focus on
1） wheat stripe rust fungal biology, mechanisms of the fungal pathogenicity and variation;
2）Wheat-stripe rust fungi interactions;
3）Genetics of wheat resistance to stripe rust disease and resistant germplasm development;
4） Epidemics of wheat stripe rust and control techniques.
These studies were supported by over twenty projects, such as “National Key Basic Research Program of China” （973 program）； “National High-Tech Research and Development Program of China” （863 program）； “National Natural Science Foundation of China”； “Program of Modern Agricultural Industrial System Scientists Project” et al, and got over 6 million dollars funding.
