. Principal Investigator, Executive Deputy Director, Prof. CHEN Shanchun

    This research team is led by Prof. CHEN Shanchun. The key team members include associate Profs. HONG Qibin, HE Yongrui, YAO Lixiao, GONG Guizhi, YAN Chengquan and Dr ZHOU Xiuping. There are six major research areas:

    1) Cross breeding, irradiation breeding and bud-sport selection;

    2) Variety selection and breeding by cell and genetic engineering;

    3) Genetic study of important traits such as apomixis, resistance to biotic and/or abiotic stresses.

    4) Molecular marker assisted selection;

    5) Molecular genetic mapping and QTL analysis;

    6) High efficiency citrus breeding technology.
