Division of Plant Sciences

We aim to establish a system for the production of useful plants combining conventional methods of breeding and biotechnological techniques such as gene recombination and genome editing technology, which can assist in designing plants with high functionality, producing useful substances, and exploring any novel functions and unused or lessused components. We will also build an efficient breeding system that enables a precise, comprehensive evaluation of plant functions using plant factories.

(Key Words)
