General info

Project titleNovel techniques of tailor-made breeding for energy crop improvement using high-throughput genotyping
Project Description
Sorghum, which is mainly used for fodder, also has high potential as a raw material for bioenergy. For bioenergy purposes it is imperative to breed a cultivar that both grows robustly and contains ample amounts of the components that can easily be converted into ethanol. With this research, we will make skillful use of the latest genome analysis techniques and establish new techniques for the rapid production of cultivars. Targeting areas of cultivation where there are actual plans for ethanol production, we will develop techniques to create new varieties optimized for the environment of each particular region.
