Time:2017-10-20 Views:

Brief Introduction:
Research Center for Resource Insects and Biotechnology (RCRIB),was founded in 1978, of which the predecessor was known as Nematodes Research Group. It was renamed as the Biotechnology Research Group in 2000 and in 2009 it was renamed as the present name.


Research Area:
(1) The research, industrialization and application of the novel biological insecticide - entomopathogenic nematodes;
(2) The research and utilization of resource insects (medicinal insect - the Hepialidae insect, pollinator - bee, feed insect-house fly) and their functional genes;
(3) The research and application of biotechnology (fermentation engineering, genetic engineering, cell culture, biochemistry, etc.).


Research Progress:
In recent 20 years, the research center has undertaken more than 80 important research projects, including international cooperation projects [such as projects from Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research (ACIAR), International Foundation for Science (IFS), the European Union Fifth and SeventhFramework Program (FP5 and FP7), Flemish Interuniversity Council and UK Department for International Development (DFID)], projects supported bythe National Natural Science Foundation of China, Natural Science Foundation of Guangdong Province, and other projects supported by local government.
The research center won 9 prizes awarded by national and provincial government; applied for 57 national invention patents, 44 of which were authorized; applied for 6international invention patents, 2 of which were authorized; published more than 150research papers including more than 50 papers in SCI source; participated in writing 3 monographsin Englishincluding “Entomopathology Nematology”, “Application of Entomopathogenic Nematodes”, “Mass production of Beneficial organisms”, and 1 monographof “Biological Control for Pest” in Chinese; established 16 corporate standards; and trained 30 Masterstudents, 10 PhD students, and 1 postdoctoral fellowssince 2001.


Research Team:
This research center has a staff of 16, including 2 professors, 4 associate professors and 5 research associates. Among them, 6 got doctoral degrees and 4 got master's degrees. Beside there are 3 Post-Doctors, 1 Ph.Dcandidate and 3 Master students in this center. It composes of people from different subjects including entomology, microbiology, molecular biology, biochemistry, biological fermentation engineering, pest management and so on.
