Outline

Synthetic Genomics Research Group
Our group conducts on research for elucidation of central genes that connect to biomass increase through the analysis of useful plant genome including Pará-rubber tree and sorghum, a C4 photosynthesis crop. We also study on the control of gene expression respond to light environment. We will contribute sustainable production of useful biomass materials through these researches.

Subjects

  1. Research on the improvement of plant biomass production through analysis of gene expression profile and genome of Pará-rubber tree
  2. Research on plant biomass improvement through chemical biology
  3. Genome and expression studies and gene transformation of Sorghum a C4 photosynthesis crop
  4. Analysis of mechanism for plant’s response to light environment
