Outline

Our team aims to develop plants with improvements in the quantitative and qualitative productivity of cellulosic biomass. By using model grass, we carry out gene discovery to improve biomass productivity and adaptively to environmental changes in plants. Furthermore, we are promoting applied researches for plants for biomass resources in collaboration with universities and institutes.

Subjects

  1. Elucidation of molecular mechanisms of higher productivity in allopolyploid and its application to increase plant biomass production
  2. Identification of useful genes for improving biomass productivity in grasses
  3. Enhancement of cellulosic biomass by rational modification of the sugar metabolism system in grasses
Vigorous growth of allopolyploid Brachypodium
