We will accelerate breed improvement
by using genome information of rice varieties!


Using rice productivity and environmental stress tolerance as a material, we clarified the characteristics of enormous rice genetic resources, which is the driving force for breeding improvement, from the viewpoint of genome composition, and found a method to find genes (group) that can cope with various breeding targets I will develop it. In addition, we will clarify the dynamics of genome and chromosome in crossbreeding, and develop techniques to connect useful genes and agronomic characters to breed cultivation in the shortest possible time.
