Research Area

He has been focusing his research on plant synthetic biology and published 11 international peer reviewed papers. Two of these papers first found plant hormone jasmonate receptor and revealed a novel mechanism of F-box protein degradation, which were recommended by Faculty of 1000 due to its great scientific significance. Dr. Yan also has developed plant and yeast cell reactors for a variety of bioenergy and natural products. In addition, Dr. Yan are dedicating effort to provide a novel and high-efficient cellulose utilization based on bacteria consortia synthetic biology.
