Description

The major interests are focusing on identification of new genetic resources for drought and flooding tolerance to improve soybean sustainable production. The specific interests:

  1. Characterize exotic and wild germplasm for abiotic stress tolerance;
  2. Genetic analysis in bi-parental populations and diverse lines for QTL mapping;
  3.  Map-base gene cloning for the major QTLs;
  4. Functional characterization of the candidate genes;
  5. Incorporation of genes from exotic source into elite lines.
