Vice president of Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences
Education and Work Experience
Prof. Wan is an expert in the field of agricultural biological breeding in China. He is mainly engaged in the research of gene mapping, cloning and breeding of rice. Focusing on the characters such as rice quality, super high yield, resistance to pests and diseases, stress resistance, he
constructed high-density new molecular marker maps, carried out fine mapping, cloning and genetic transformation of related new genes, and conducted functional genomics, proteomics and biology informatics study of rice. He established and improved a highly efficient breeding system for molecular design, and combined with conventional breeding to cultivate new varieties of high-quality rice with market competitiveness.
