Welcome to the Kunming Institute of Zoology

KIZ is one of 20 life science institutes within the Chinese Academy of Sciences, and is located in Kunming, Yunnan. Research at KIZ focuses on the biological diversity of the Indo-Burman Hotspot and Southeastern Asia in order to better understand the areas genetic resources, develop novel animal models of human disease, and more effectively utilize the areas domestic and wid species.

RESEARCH PROGRESS
Research progress of phylogeography on scimitar babbler in Yang’s Lab
Species-level paraphyly inferred from mitochondrial gene trees is a prevalent phenomenon in phylogenetics and phylogeography, but there are several potential causes (e.g. deep coalescence, introgression) representing various evolutionary processes. Previous molecular systematics on P. ruficollis also suggested plaus... more
Bing-Yu Mao’s Lab Makes Progress in Understanding the Intracellular Mechanisms of Cancer.
β-catenin is a protein that helps regulate gene transcription and binding cells to create larger structures. As such, β-catenin is important to normal embryonic development and is linked to tumor development and cancer. Therefore, targeting β-catenin as a way to treat cancer has received a lot of scientific atten... more
To Err is Human: KIZ researchers find sequencing errors in widely used domestic animal mtDNA sequences
Mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) marked widely used in evolutionary studies, especially in studies on human evolutionary history. At present, a large number of mtDNA genome sequences have submitted to public databases, but the quality of the data is not always perfect. Recent studies on the quality of human mtDNA found tha... more
DBG2OLC—an ultra-efficient genome assembler for large genomes expected to significantly boost the adoptions of single molecule DNA sequencing technologies
The Human Genome Project, the biggest biomedical project humans have ever endeavored to the date, greatly accelerated the advancement of DNA sequencing technologies. Three generations of DNA sequencing technologies have been developed in the last three decades, and we are at the crossroads of the second and third ge... more
