Outline of the laboratory

Using rice and Brassicaceae crops as the main experimental materials, we are studying plant genomes, molecular genetics of plant reproduction mechnisms and environmental stress tolerances, and breeding techniques using SNP analysis of genes.

  1. Studies on genome and genetic resources in Brassicaceae crops
  2. Molecular genetic study on plant reproduction mechnisms
  3. Studies on genetics and breeding of environmental stress tolerances
  4. Development of breeding techniques using SNP analysis of genes

Genetic resources of Brassica and wild allies are well-known by Brassica researchers in the world.
