Plant Developmental Genetics, Plant Evolutionary Development

Research Subject

Meristem regulation and lateral organ development in plants

Current Research

Plant morphology varies a great deal depending on plant species. However, studies of genes that regulate such diverse morphology are insufficient. I am focusing on rice and trying to elucidate the developmental mechanism of unique flower and tiller in relation to the regulatory mechanism of the meristem.
