Development of plants with new features by the introduction of foreign heterologous genes. In particular, we aim to obtain plants with enhanced biomass based on rapid growth capability and thickened cell wall, by modification of sugar chains of plant proteoglycans, arabinogalactan proteins, using molecular biological techniques.
Studies on modulation of cellular physiology in yeast by nutrients via regulation of peptide transporters. Searching for their non-peptide substrates, and exploration of novel bioactivities of dipeptides. Development of high-functioning yeast strains.
