      In the last AgriX Forum, Professor Xiao Yingjie from Huazhong Agricultural University was invited to share the contents of "Heterosis Analysis and Genome Breeding Methods of Maize". The report is very exciting. Welcome to join!
      This is the 169th issue of AgriX Forum(October 20). Researcher Zhang Yijing from Fudan University was invited to share the content of "War and Peace of Wheat Genome - Specific Expansion of Transposon and Evolution of Common Wheat". Welcome to this lecture!

keynote speaker

Fudan University - Researcher Zhang Yijing

The 169th Lecture

Zhang Yijing

      Zhang Yijing, researcher and doctoral supervisor of School of Life Sciences, Fudan University. He graduated from Ocean University of China in 2003. In 2008, he received a doctor's degree from the Institute of Genetics and Developmental Biology, Chinese Academy of Sciences. From 2008 to 2013, he successively engaged in bioinformatics research in China Agricultural University, Boston University and Harvard Medical School. In 2013, he joined Shanghai Institute of Plant Physiology and Ecology as a researcher. In 2021, he began to work as a researcher in Fudan Institute of Life Sciences. In recent years, the work focused on the molecular mechanism of apparent plasticity specificity determining polyploid plasticity by using high-throughput technology with common wheat as the model.

Breeding column | 7 - Targeted sequencing of genotyping

Targeted sequencing is a method to isolate, enrich and sequence a group of target genes or genome regions. This method enables researchers to focus time, cost and data analysis on specific regions of interest (target regions, genes), and use less data to obtain higher sensitivity and accuracy, so as to achieve rapid screening of mutation sites. These target regions usually include exome (the protein coding part of the genome), specific genes of interest (customized content), and target regions in genes or mitochondrial DNA.



Breeding column | 6-New genotyping technology: FBI seq

FBI seq (Foreground and Background Integrated genotyping by sequencing) is not sequencing by the US Federal Bureau of Investigation, but genotyping sequencing integrating foreground and background. As the name implies, this technology realizes the detection and selection of foreground genes and genetic background at the same time. The selection of foreground and background is two very important steps in molecular breeding. At present, breeders often need to carry out these two steps independently: first, screen foreground target sites, and then develop a large number of probes/bait/PCR primers to detect background genotypes. These time-consuming and costly preparations greatly delay the start of breeding projects.



Invitation | S371 Biobin Data Sciences invites you to participate in the 4th China North Seed Industry Expo!

Deeply cultivate the agricultural core, and work together for the future. In response to the call of the country to build a "China core" of seed industry, and to promote the joint construction of the "Northern Seed City", Phoenix Expo was officially upgraded to the "China Northern Seed Expo" on the basis of successfully holding three sessions of China Shandong International Vegetable Seed Expo, focusing on new varieties and new technologies such as field, vegetables, fruits and vegetables, horticulture, balcony agriculture, and combining cloud seed industry, cloud plant protection, cloud agricultural science platform, Build online and offline promotion and trading dual platforms for seed breeding. The 2022 Northern Species Expo will be linked with the 29th Shandong Double Trade Fair for Plant Protection, China Shandong International New Fertilizer Exhibition, and China (Shandong) New Agricultural Equipment Exhibition!
