Research topics

 

- Analysis of salt tolerance mechanisms in plants, especially functional analysis of potassium transporters, using wild turf grass and mangrove plants as materials.

 

- Analysis of drought tolerance mechanisms in plants

 

- Phytoremediation, especially production of formaldehyde-detoxifying plants


We have identified potassiumu transporters from S. virginicus, which mediate potassium transport from roots to shoots. These proteins could contribute to the production of salt tolerant plants, and also plants not requiring potassium as a fertilizer. We are working on the identification and functional analysis of the proteins which are responsible for potassium/sodium transport in plants, especially wild turf grasses.

We are conducting research to use the function of plants to solve agriculture and environmental problems.

We are seeking graduate students who will be enrolled in April 2019.
