Research Fields
Evolution, phylogenetics, and functional genomics of seed plants
Major Research Achievements (2013-2017)
  • Phylogenetic relationships among the five groups of extant seed plants are presently unsettled. To re-examine this long-standing issue, we have been determining the complete chloroplast and mitochondrial genomes of many key seed plants and lower vascular plants. In addition to obtain a better resolved phylogenetic tree of extant seed plants, we aim to seek for more solid structural evidence for the clades in the tree. My lab is also interested in the characterization and evolution of novel or useful secondary metabolic genes from some indigenous plants with commercial or pharmaceutical values. We have been also investigating the functional divergence of chlorophyll-degradation-related genes encoded the enzyme Chlorophyllase, whose isoforms are expressed in cotyledons, leaves, fruits, and seed coats of soybeans.
Research Interests
  • Molecular phylogeny of major seed plant lineages
  • Evolution of plant organellar genomes
  • Functional divergence of duplicate genes / Comparative genomics
    Ongoing projects
    • Evolution of chloroplast genome structural changes in seed plants
    • Evolution of plant mitochondrial genomes
    • Diversity and evolution of secondary metabolic gene families in endemic plants of Taiwan
