Long-term cotton biotechnology and breeding application research, in the international first to achieve from the wild cotton cells and protoplast regeneration of plants, to achieve somatic cell fusion and regeneration of plants; established a high-throughput cotton transgenic system; and CRISPR - Cas 9 technology was successfully applied in cotton. A series of important functional genes related to disease resistance, high temperature resistance and fibre development were identified. The genome sequencing of island cotton was completed, and the domestication process of cotton was revealed, which laid the foundation for whole genome breeding.
