Plant Molecular and Cellular Biology

The research focus on this laboratory is plant breeding and application of plant biotechnology on soybean, potatoes, sweet potatoes, coconut palm, orchids, chili, banana, rice, jatropha and medicinal plants species.
  • Genetic improvement and molecular analysis (gene isolation, construction of cDNA and genomic library) in low pH and or high aluminum soil of soybean; isolation of resistance genes associated to low pH, high Al of Melastoma affine.
  • Detail research on biotechnology crops species are as follow:
  • Jatropha curcas research on transgenic for flowering, tolerance to acid and Al stresses.
  • Study on genetic improvement (diseases) through transgenesis and protoplast fusion and production of mini-potato seeds.
  • Genetic improvement (haplodization, hybrid seeds) of hot chili pepper.
  • Molecular analysis of resistance to blas disease (M. grisea) of Oryza sativa.
  • Production of ornamental plants, bananas and horticultural plants.
