Dr. Chii-Gong Tong promoted to Associate Specialist

Dr. Chii-Gong Tong was promoted to the position of Associate Specialist on March 2, 2020.

Dr. Chii-Gong Tong joined the Agricultural Biotechnology Research Center in 2006. Since 2009, he has aided the research and development directions of the ABRC by investigating the functional roles of symbiotic bacteria in the growth, development and disease resistance of Phalaenopsis orchids and tomato. He analyzes this symbiosis by using genomic and transcriptomic analyses. In addition, he also evaluated the stability of the existing Phalaenopsis gene transgenic platform and planned the orchid gene transgenic services. Since 2016, the Agricultural Biotechnology Center “Orchid Transformation Core Facility" has been formally established, and it can now be used for stable transformation of several Phalaenopsis species using a unique platform which is three to four times faster than traditional methods. By the end of 2019, 37 cases of gene transformation and gene editing services for orchids including Phalaenopsis orchid had been successfully completed significantly speeding up basic research on the physiological and horticultural characteristics of orchids. In addition, orchid species with high economic value such as Red-flower Phalaenopsis, Dendrobium candidum and Cattleya have also been successfully transformed. Since 2020, these orchid transformation technology services have been opened for use by academic research units outside ABRC.
