The team of Marine Ecological Genomics uses genomic methods to study marine ecological concerns, elucidate the mechanisms of marine organisms adapting to extreme environments (cold seep, hydrothermal vent, and deep-sea areas), and explore functions related to important economic traits of marine organisms through genetic data analysis, including sex determination, disease resistance, growth, and pigmentation, and thus combine them with the industry.
