The research team regards the "archaea", one of the three life forms of the earth, as the key research direction of the marine science of Southern University of Science and Technology, and closely focuses on the scientific problem of "the interaction of archaea in the evolution of ocean and biogeology", organization and cohesion a strong research team. The team members have accumulated a good work in marine biology, marine geology, marine sedimentary dynamics, chemical biology, molecular biology, structural biology, bioengineering, and marine technology, and have achieved a series of original results. The multi-level research system and experimental model of molecular, lipid, chemical and environmental have been established, which laid a solid foundation for the development and completion of the research project of the team. And the members of this research team has published many articles Corresponding author / first author on the research paper in Science, PNAS, Geology, Frontiers in Microbiology, ISME J, Environmental Microbiology, Marine Geology, Geophysical Research Letters and other important academic journals. The team members published nearly 30 research papers and applied for 3 national patents in the first two years after returning to China. Chuanlun Zhang, director of the laboratory and academic leader. He is currently the deputy director and Chair professor of the Department of Ocean Science and Engineering of Southern University of Science and Technology. The laboratory members are professors and engineering and technical researchers at Southern University of Science and Technology. They have rich professional knowledge and many years of experience in offshore work. The establishment of the Shenzhen Key Laboratory of Marine Geosynthesis, will bring into play the multi-disciplinary advantages of the ocean, gather the research strength of the Department of Ocean, Environment, Biology and Chemistry of the University of South University, and conduct international research in the field of marine science and life sciences. Prospective study. The laboratory has been equipped with a mathematical calculation HPC Cluster, and initially established a bioinformatics analysis platform. And has purchased fluorescent / ultraviolet spectrometer, fluorescence quantitative PCR, ultracentrifuge, three-dimensional fluorescence spectrometer, liquid chromatography-mass spectrometer and gas chromatography-mass spectrometer, polarized light microscope, ultra-micro UV spectrophotometer and other large The instrument is being tendered and contacted to purchase large-scale instruments such as flow cytometry, nutrient salt continuous flow chemical analysis and Fourier infrared spectroscopy, and plans to purchase large instruments such as inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometers and total organic carbon/total nitrogen analyzers. instrument. At present, there is a good research and experimental platform, the research area is more than 828 square meters, and the existing value of instruments and special software is more than 7.4 million. In 2018, 3 million large-scale instruments and equipment have been purchased. At present, the laboratory has established bacteria, archaea enrichment and culture, FISH, PCR, qPCR, high-throughput sequencing, metagenomics, single-cell genome and bioinformatics analysis, isotope analysis, lipid analysis, etc. Leading experimental technology. Through the international exchange of scientific research and technical personnel in the early stage, the sample pretreatment and the accuracy of the instrument analysis results are greatly guaranteed. Most of the academic team members of the laboratory have the experience of hosting and undertaking project projects before returning to China. After returning to China for a short period of two years, they have already undertaken 5 projects of the National Natural Science Foundation, 1 science and technology project in Guangdong Province, and 1 international cooperation project. The total funding is more than 7 million. And the director of the laboratory, Professor Zhang, joined SUSTech in 2017. He enjoys 10 million matching funds for the research start-up school of SUSTech and 5 million start-up expenses for the talents of Shenzhen. The core key personnel are all funded by the research projects of SUSTech and Shenzhen City. In summary, the laboratory research team has a good research foundation, research echelon, research conditions and working environment, supporting the operation of the laboratory, as well as the various hardware and software conditions required for project research.
