Development of plants having high immunity for new food and eco-friendly energy.

The filed of plant biotechnology aims to establish techniques that aid biomass production and enhanced crop productivity. For that, we are focused on the signaling networks of various phytohormones such as cytokinin, auxin, brassinosteroid, abscisic acid, and salicylic acid. As well, we are also investigating epigenetic regulations of the induced resistance (e.g. priming) against various pathogen attacks in genome level.
In addition, we are prompting to understand how legume plants develop the nodules for nitrogen fixation.
The integrative analysis of these complex interactions among signaling cascades are comprehensively analyzed in our own interactome database (PDNA) to understand the network of life.
