My current research is editing susceptibility gene on potato by using CRISPR/Cas9 method to increase late blight resistance ability. In near future, we would like to created non-transgenic potato line which resistance to Phytophthora infestans.


I have background on plant cell tissue culture, plant transformation, microbiology and molecular biology. They are so helpful on my interested field, plant-microbe interaction.
