●  研究兴趣、领域:


        1)高分辨冷冻电镜断层成像(cryo-Electron Tomography, cryo-ET)方法开发。高分辨cryo-ET是通过收集三维断层图像,再使用子断层图像平均法(sub-tomogram averaging, STA)进行结构解析的前沿结构生物学方法。由于cryo-ET数据包含精确的Z轴信息,它对样品纯度及构象均一性要求较低,且在制备样品过程中无需使其脱离原生环境,可获得更具生理意义的结构。
        2)新发致病型囊膜病毒的组装及通过膜融合解胞的结构与功能。包括新冠病毒在内的囊膜病毒是对现代人类健康最具威胁的病原体。由于形态不均一,囊膜病毒的原位结构一直是结构生物学的挑战。我们使用cryo-ET解析全病毒结构,及在细胞中直接观测病毒生命活动的原位结构,希望回答:囊膜病毒如何组装,又如何通过膜融合解胞?可否找到病毒在这些过程中的弱点?
