  • Name: Chi-Ping Cheng (鄭綺萍)
  • Title: Associate professor
  • Highest Degree: Ph.D., University of Kentucky
  •  Research expertise: Plant viruses, virus-host interaction, biotechnology
  •  E-mail: cp1103@mail.tcu.edu.tw
  •  Office/ Laboratory Site: D801、D909/D824
  •  Office/ Laboratory Tel.:038565301 #2631/2632
  •  Research Interests: My laboratory is focusing on studying the interaction between plant viruses and their hosts. Using the cDNA amplified fragment length polymorphism (AFLP) method, several host factors involved in the virus infection have been identified. We are currently working on revealing the mechanisms how these host factors affect the virus infection as well as the physiological function of these host proteins. The long-term goal is to develop new antiviral strategies by understanding the detail mechanisms.
  •  The technics you can learn in the lab: Molecular biology: cloning, DNA & RNA purification, RT-PCR, real-time PCR, Western blotting, immunoprecipitation Cell biology: fluorescent microscopy, confocal microscopy, protoplast isolation, virus-induced gene silencing
  •  Recent Research Grants:l

NO.
