Tsugama Laboratory — For Genomics of Plant Resources
植物資源ゲノミクス研究室 (津釜研)   (C) 2019 Daisuke Tsugama

English Japanese


Population growth and environmental degradation have both been rapidly proceeding in the world. It is important to restore vegetation and to develop sustainable food production systems that do not need much labor and agrochemical input. These require good use of plants. Plants are also indispensable as ornaments and sources of diverse tastes and fragrances.

Our laboratory aims to elucidate growth traits, especially stress tolerances, of various plant species, to identify genes relevant to those traits, and to find and/or generate right plants in right places.

Materials and Methods

Powerful machines are available

Our materials include pearl millet, garden asparagus, Arabidopsis thaliana, Brassica rapa and other plant species (see Topics). Any plant materials of your interest are welcome.

Our research is based on plant genomics and molecular biology. These include gene cloning, protein analysis, genome sequencing, genetic analysis, analysis of transgenic and genome-edited plants, etc. For these, we also grow plants in our field and evaluate their traits.


トウジンビエ、アスパラガス、シロイヌナズナ、Brassica rapaなど、様々な植物種を材料として研究を行っています(Topics参照)。材料は自らの興味に基づいて選定していただいて(基本的には)大丈夫です。

Contact Information

Our lab belongs to Asian Natural Environmental Science Center (ANESC), The University of Tokyo. Our lab is also a cooperating laboratory for Major in Applied Biology and Department of Agricultural and Environmental Biology of Graduate School of Agricultural and Life Sciences / Faculty of Agriculture, The University of Tokyo.

Undersraduate students in Major in Applied Biology and Major in International Sustainable Agriculture Development can choose our lab to conduct research for the graduation thesis. Students participating in M.Sc. and Ph.D. courses of Department of Agricultural and Environmental Biology can also join us. A post-doc or a researcher who has no finantial support is not acceptable, but may be helped to apply together for scholarship and/or research grants. Any question is welcome.
