In recent years, with a solid platform for scientific research, the college has launched 496 scientific research projects, including 72 state-level scientific research projects and more than 100 provincial and ministerial-level scientific research projects, with total scientific research funds of over 80 million Yuan; and published 600 academic papers, of which 76 have been collected by three major retrieval systems such as SCI. The article “Functional Mapping –How to Map and Study the Genetic Architecture of Dynamic Complex Traits” published by Professor Wu Rongling inNature Reviews: Geneticsis rated as being in the first batch of the 100 mostinfluential international academic papers in China. The college took charge of projects and won two first prizes and four second prizes of Science and Technology Progress Award, one second prize in the National Teaching Achievement Award and two first prizes at the Provincial Teaching Achievement Award.
