Research Interest

Research FieldPlant molecular genetics
Research Summary

I'm working on molecular genetics of rice. Rice is a staple food for half of the world population. To dissolve world food shortage, I'm challenging to produce high-yielding rice variety by using both recent genetic technologies and traditional breeding techniques.

Keywordsrice, ,molecular genetics, molecular breeding
