Biomolecule Module

Mission & Vision of Modules

  • As temperatures change globally, crops currently grown near the equator may be grown in areas far from the equator in the near future. Agricultural plants that have their origin in the equatorial region will then be grown in in day-length environments novel to them. There is a need for basic research on how well tropical plants can cope with seasonal changes in day length and which genes should be focused on to produce varieties that are tolerant to seasonal change in day length. Our cluster will focus on circadian clock genes, which are thought to have evolved differently to adapt to different day-length environments, to clarify the mechanisms of adaptation to day-length environments through interspecific comparisons.
