Adjunct Assistant Professor, School of Integrative Plant Science Plant Biology Section
Fay-Wei Li is broadly interested in the evolutionary processes at the gene, genome, and microbiome levels that shaped the plant diversity. We mostly focus on “seed-free” plants (ferns, lycophytes, and bryophytes), and anything that has a weird biology. He is an assistant professor at the Boyce Thompson Institute (BTI).

Researchers have assembled a high-quality Isoetes genome that furthers understanding of how these aquatic plants regulate CAM photosynthesis to compete for carbon dioxide underwater, and how that regulation differs from terrestrial plants.
