Li's research projects

Genetic Improvement of Blueberries: Phase I

Do you like bigger and more flavorful blueberries? It's all about berry fruit development. The blueberry yield is positively correlated with the fruit size. While wild blueberries taste better than cultivars, their production yield is only 1/10th of the cultivars. Our objective is to discover fruit microRNAs that can be used for producing bigger blueberries.


Projects that Li has supported

Improving wild and cultivar blueberries to fight diabetes and cancers (改良野生和栽培蓝莓品种对抗糖尿病和癌症)

用蓝莓对抗糖尿病和癌症:This project aims to improve the health of people, the education of Michigan Tech students, the research capability of Michigan Tech faculty, and the extension of growing better blueberries for the economical growth of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Our goal is to establish a blueberry experimental station and provide better, free, wild, and cultivar blueberry plants to local residents.
