Welcome to Laboratory of Plant Genetics, Kobe University

We perform genetic studies on environmental adaptation, intraspecific differentiation, production of interspecific hybrids, and allopolyploid speciation using wheat and its relatives as plant materials. Common wheat is one of the most important crops in the world, and traditionally essential for Japanese foods. Common wheat is an allohexaploid species with A, B, and D genomes, and the genome complexity and uniqueness make it possible for us to carry out attractive genetic studies.
