Associate Professor


Dr. Lin Genmei received her Ph.D. degree from Ocean University of China in 2018. During her doctoral degree, she went to Texas A & M University as a joint training doctoral student. In July 2018, she joined the School of Marine Sciences of Sun Yat-sen University. At present, the main research topic is the co-evolution mechanism of the marine fish intestinal metagenome and the marine ecological environment. Through the research methods of 16S rRNA gene, metagenome, macrotranscriptome, and microbial metabolome, the marine fish intestinal flora and marine extremes are studied. A systematic study of the tolerance and adaptation mechanisms of microorganisms in the environment. He has published 2 SCI theses, and presided over 1 each of the National Natural Science Foundation of China Youth Fund Project and China Postdoctoral Science Foundation Project.
