Research Experiences:
        1. Mechanism of ubiquitination spermatogenesis, at the Sperm
            Laboratory at Zhejiang University;
        2. Functions of the new cytoskeletal structure
           acroframosome (AFS) during spermatogenesis in caridean shrimp.

     during spermiogenesis of Chinese mitten crab Eriocheir sinensis,
supported by National Nature Science Fundation of China (NSFC)
      (No.31072198, to Dr. Wan-Xi Yang)
2. The function of C-terminal kinesins during the formation of abnormal
    sperm, supported by Natural Science Fundation of Zhejiang
    Province (Project No. Y2100296, to Dr. Fu-Qing Tan)
3. The functional analysis of a new cytoskeletal structure
     acroframosome  (AFS) in caridean shrimp Macrobrachium
(De Man), supported by the Sperm Laboratory.
