Plant Molecular Technology Research Group

We are developing molecular technologies for the production of useful substances, such as therapeutic antibodies, cytokines and vaccine components, by using transgenic plants and plant virus vector system. On the other hand, we have been developing the closed-type transgenic plant production system for production of plant-made pharmaceuticals. By using this system, the development of hydroponic technologies for different plant species and the proof examination of productivity of useful substances have also been carried out.
