Welcome to the Kunming Institute of Zoology

Located in the Indo-Burma biodiversity hotspot, the Kunming Institute of Zoology serves as a center for research on the diverse biological resources of southwestern China, the Eastern Himalayas and Southeast Asia. The institute’s main research priorities are evolutionary genetics and genomics; conservation and utilization of animal genetic resources, including domesticated animals; development of animal models for human disease mechanisms and new pharmaceuticals; and stem cell applications.

RESEARCH PROGRESS
A New Species of Sisorid Catfish Was Found in Myanmar Named as Oreoglanis hponkanensis

  North Myanmar is one of the most species diverse hotspots in the world. In recent years, Wildlife Biodiversity in Southeast Asia Research Group in Kunming Institute of Zoology (KIZ), led by Xiaoyong CHEN Researcher, has carried out several investigations about aquatic organisms’ diversity here. During a survey... more
Collaborative Team of Scientists Determines the First High-resolution Structure of a Eukaryotic Cyclic Nucleotide-gated Channel

  When we see the colorful world or smell a pleasant (or repulsive) scent, light or chemical signals are converted into electrical signals in our eyes and noses, signals that our brain recognizes and processes. Crucial for this signal conversion is a group of membrane proteins called cyclic nucleotide-gated (CNG)... more
Scientists discover new species of genus Fejervarya - Fejervarya chiangmaiensis sp. nov. from northern Thailand

  Species of genus Fejervarya belong to family Dicroglossidae, inhabit in farmland, swaps and other open wet habitats. The genus Fejervarya currently contains 40 species which can be classified into two large groups: the South Asia group and the East and Southeast Asian group. In Thailand, in total of seven speci... more
Scientists Draw the Distribution Map of Grey Wolves in China

  As one of the earliest domesticated animals, dogs are widely distributed worldwide, whereas, the distributions of their ancestor, the grey wolf, in China is still controversial. Many well-known western literatures claimed that grey wolves were never presented in large part of China. However, from many historica... more
