Research theme:
・Elucidation of the mechanism of chromosome elimination in hybrid cells(雑種細胞における染色体脱落機構の解明)
・Creation of diversity through wide cross(交雑による多様性の創出)
・Development of novel cytogenetics technology by applying genome editing(ゲノム編集技術応用による新規細胞遺伝学技術の開発)
・Development of rapid plant breeding technology by modifying the function of kinetochore.(動原体機能改変による迅速な植物育種技術の開発)

Obtained (planned) degree/date:Doctor of Philosophy Ph.D (Agriculture) Obtained in March 2013


During undergraduate, master, and doctoral studies, I have consistently analyzed the phenomenon of uniparental genome elimination (chromosome elimination) in plant hybrid cells using cytogenetic methods. Chromosome elimination is a very universal phenomenon in living organisms, observed in hybrid cells of various species. However, the mechanism remains to be elucidated. I would like to study chromosome elimination phenomenon in various plants, clarify the mechanism of chromosome elimination. I will control the chromosome elimination to create hybrid plants that have never existed before in this planet.
