  Research Focus

  Taxonomy, DNA barcoding and Phylogeny of Crambidae, mainly focused on the subfamily Pyraustinae. The funding resources include “Systematics and phylogeny of generic groups within Pyraustinae from East Asia based on molecular and morphological characteristics” (The National Natural Science Fund Youth Project 31201733); Geographic genetic population and tracing the origin of Loxostege sticticalis based on the mitochondrial genome (The Shaanxi Provincial Natural Science Foundation Project 2016JM3026)。
