Graduate schoolPlant Biotechnology

Major in Plant Biotechnology

Plant Biotechnology

The major of plant biotechnology utilizes various gene manipulation and molecular breeding technologies to improve the plant production from environmental factors with abiotic and biotic stresses and do molecular research on biological phenomenon of plant. And we also focus on transgenic plant production, molecular plant microbe interaction, functional genomics, DNA markers and mushroom biotechnology. The primary objective of the plant biotechnology is to develop the future high-technology and to educate the capable young scientists. The primary research thrust of the program is on improving resistance or tolerance of economically important plants to stress resulting from pests, predation, drought, salinity, heat, frost, or other environmental factors. Expertise currently is focused on plant improvement, biological control, interdisciplinary and genomic research.
