Forest Bioresources Department

Forest Bioresources Department aims to conduct research for conservation and sustainable use of forest genetic resources, and development of high value-added forest trees and functional microorganisms for increasing forest productivity and income improvement in rural areas and forest villages. Under this goal, the Division strives to analyze genome information of forest bioresources, develop conservation and genetic restoration strategies of forest genetic resources, improve useful characteristics of forest tree resources and mass production techniques. We are also committed to developing new cultivars of special-purpose tree resources for commercial utilization and short-term income, breeding new strains of forest mushrooms and discovering useful functions of forest microorganisms.

Forest Bioinformation Division aims to develop efficient strategies for conservation, sustainable use and development of forest genetic resources. We focus on analyzing genome information, genetic characterization, assessing and monitoring genetic diversity for in situ and ex situ conservation, and developing genetic restoration methods of forest genetic resources

Forest Bioinformation and in situ conservation of forest genetic resources

Our research aims to develop more efficient strategies for in situ conservation of forest genetic resources. We focus on analyzing genome information based on high-throughput NGS, developing DNA markers for genetic characterization, assessing and monitoring genetic diversity for natural populations and protected areas of forest genetic resources.

ex situ conservation and genetic restoration of forest genetic resources

Our research aims to characterize physiological conditions for long-term storage of germplasms and determine optimal sampling size for ex situ conservation.
We also focus on developing strategies of genetic restoration for forest tree species vulnerable to climate change.
