Wenwu Zhou, Male, Doctor of Agriculture, Zhejiang University ‘Hundred Talents Program’ Young Professor. 

Wenwu got the bachelor degree in Nanjing Agricultural University in 2008, he got the Doctoral Degree in Zhejiang University in 2013, later he did two postdoc study in Max Planck Institute for Chemical Ecology (Department of Molecular Ecology), one from 2013 to 2016 and the other in 2017. He started working at Zhejiang University with the position of ‘Hundred Talents Program’ Young Professor since 2017.

Research work

How organisms ‘adapt’ to their niche and how do they achieve environment-dependent fitness advantages? These questions are not only the key focus of biology, but also the key problems faced by agricultural researchers in pest management. Our group uses crop plants (potato and rice, etc.) and their economically important pests (potato tube moth and rice planthoppers, etc.) as research models. We are now studying the molecular and ecology mechanism of plant-insect interactions, via combining the omics (genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, metabolomics) and the forward/reverse genetic techniques, through lab work and field study. Our study will be helpful for the improvement of crops and integrative pest management. Our research topics and scientific questions are as follow: 1) The interaction between insect and plant: How plant recognize the damage of insect pests, how do they modulate the herbivore defense molecular network and pathways, how do they efficiently allocate primary metabolic resources to cope with the herbivore ‘crisis’, how do they defend themselves via secondary metabolites? On the contrary, how insects (herbivores and nature enemies) sense and locate the plants through chemosensory system, how do they cope with the defense compounds produced by plants? 2) The Sphingolipid pathway of insects: The Sphingolipids are key compound of cell membrane, as second messengers for cell activities, how do they manipulate the growth, development and reproduction of insects. 3) Integrative pest management: In the agro-ecosystem, how to improve the instinct ecoservice, and how to avoid those eco-disservice?
