This centre is focusing on:

Molecular ecology of stress tolerance of rice and maize in subtropical areas

Understanding  the  molecular  mechanisms  of stress tolerance in rice and maize by discovering the novel genes and signal  transmit  pathway  in  course  of stress  response; developing genetic markers and cloning novel genes of stress tolerance  in rice  and maize to serve the breeding practice for subtropical areas of China. 

  

                        

  

Molecular breeding of stress tolerance of rice and maize in subtropical areas

breeding  rice  and maize  variety for stress  tolerance by genetic transformation and maker assistant  selection; utilizing the heterosis of stress  tolerance  in rice  and maize to provide combinations with high yield, good grain quality and multi-stress tolerance for subtropical areas of China.
