Outline

Plant Genomic Network Research Team
We are analyzing novel epigenetic, RNA and peptide regulation mechanisms in environmental stress adaptation and acclimation by integrated omics analyses. We are also analyzing regulatory networks of tuberous root formation by integrated omics analyses in cassava, an important tropical crop for carbon utilization. We aim to develop useful plant resources, such as increased stress tolerance and improved plant productivity by use of chemical compounds and transformation technology.

Subjects

  1. Analysis of epigenetic, RNA and peptide regulation mechanisms in environmental stress adaptation
  2. Advancement of cassava molecular breeding by cutting-edge technologies
  3. Development of useful plant resources, such as increased stress tolerance by chemical compounds, peptides and transformation technology
Enhancing plant abiotic stress tolerance through understanding epigenome, RNA, peptides, and chemical regulatory networks
Promoting cassava research that contributes to solve the global issues
