Utilization of various approaches in molecular biology and plant biotechnology leads to the development elite cassava cultivars and hybrid rice that can expand opportunities for agricultural industries.
|1.||To identify and characterize genes participating in starch biosynthesis pathway, starch accumulation and the formation and development of cassava storage roots in cassava|
|2.||To enhance knowledge in the regulation of sucrose-to-starch conversion and starch biosynthesis pathway in cassava|
|3.||To develop efficient transformation protocol for Thai cultivars|
|4.||To develop novel cassava cultivars with desirable starch traits|
|5.||To identify molecular markers linked to genes and candidate gene per se that control agronomic important traits in rice.|
|6.||Functional studies of interest genes in rice|
