Laboratory of Animal Transgenosis and Cell Engineering

Henan University,March 28, 2011

The Laboratory of Animal Transgenosis and Cell Engineering was founded in 2007, and it was added as the key laboratory of Henan University in 2009. in 2010, it became the opening laboratory of the key subjects of Henan Province. It belongs to the College of Life Sciences and doctor station of the first-level biological disciplines covering zoology, developmental biology, cell biology, molecular biology, animal functional genomics, molecular genetics, cell engineering, animal transgenic technology, embryology, biological materials and so on. We have the qualification to grant master degrees of zoology, developmental biology and neurobiology. Our laboratory follows the pace of the international development frontier of life science and devote to achieve the goal of advancing starting point ,achieving high level , originality and serving the society. We strive to combine the top research fields of life science with the application of agricultural science and technology, which is a highlight in our country's policy. A plurality of academic accumulation has been made in the fields including transgenic animal and functional genome, cell reprogramming and differentiation, screening and purification of bioactive molecules, exhibiting great development potential and capability. The research team is characterized by high quality, young team members and high educational level. At present, there is 1 dual employed academician, 1 Yellow River scholar, 1 Distinguished Professor , 12 associate professors, and 7 lecturers and teaching assistants, among whom 13 persons had the doctoral degree. The lab undertakes programs including the state-level subproject of 973 problem-oriented program, Key Grant of "Transgentics", program of National Natural Science Foundation, and Excellent Programs under province-level. The Laboratory has published 150 academic papers, in which 26 papers are embodied by SCI. We actively collaborate with a number of prestigious research institutes, such as the National Laboratory of Agricultural Biotechnology of China Agriculture University, the Beijing Institute of Genomics, the Beijing Institute of Zoology, the Shanghai Institute of Biochemistry, and the Fudan University Laboratory for Synthetic Polymer Engineering.
