About Yu Jiang

We analyzed the big agricultural omics data and identified some major genomic signatures associated with interactions between diet, the digestive system, and metabolism in ruminants, and the fundamentals in plant–herbivore adaptation. Our current major area of interest is focused on ruminant livestock and their foregut fermentation system, the rumen, which represents the world’s extraordinarily efficient stomach using microbial flora to ferment the feed. We try to reveal the genetic basis of the rumen and its microbial ecosystem, and finally develop a bionic machine of artificial rumen combined with milk reactor as facilitating the conversion of lignocellulose-rich plant materials, of low value in the human diet, to high value animal protein and lipid.
