Wuhan Institute of Virology, Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS)





Wuhan Institute of Virology, Chinese Academy

of Sciences (CAS), was founded
in 1956. It is the only institute in the country focused exclusively on carrying out
fundamental research in general virology. Its research has expanded from general
virology to encompass clinical related virology and resear
ch on emerging disease.

The Institute consists of three research departments and one centre: the
Department of Molecular Virology, the Department of Bio
-
Control, the Department
of Analytical Biochemistry and Biotechnology, and the Virus Resource and
Bioin
formatics Centre of China. Within these departments and the centre are 24
research groups examining a wide range of virology
-
related research. The Institute
also includes the State Key Laboratory of Virology and the Joint Laboratory of
Invertebrate Virolog
y and the Technology Research Centre for Viral Diseases.

The future brings new challenges for the Institute. The most important of these
is to respond to national plans for continuing agricultural development and ensure the
continuing health of the popula
tion. To this end, the Institute is pursuing research on
agricultural and clinical viruses and developing bio
-
pesticides. It is also developing
new detection technologies and prevention strategies for human and animal viral
diseases
-

research for which th
e Institute is continuing to gain international
recognition.


We warmly welcome friends from various countries to the Wuhan Institute of
Virology, Chinese Academy of Sciences PhD. Mentors and professional direction
information is as follows:

the Department of Bio
chemistry University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in
Dallas; In 2005 he moved to China, working initially as a Professor of Bioinformatics
at Chinese Agricultural University, Beijing before moving to Wuhan Institute of
Virology in 2006 where he is
head of the Bioinformatics group. Research interests
include viral metagenomics and the phylodynamics of emerging disease, working
with large datasets and the development of novel analytical methods, algorithms and
visualization techniques. Primary pathog
ens of interest include flaviviruses, rabies
and Hepatitis B. He has published more than 40 papers since coming to the institute,
including journals such as AIDS, JV, BMC Bioinformatics, PLoS NTD and PLoS
