In rice, he developed two mutation pools for TNG67 and IR64 varieties using sodium azide mutagenesis. Mutants are studied from phenotype screening to genotype identification using genetic, genomic, and proteomic approaches to discover functional genes and markers for variety improvement through genomic selection and/or transgenesis. Flavonoid biosynthetic genes cloned from black seedcoat are applied in metabolic engineering to develop new flower color for phalaenopsis, chrysanthemum and poinsettia, and to add new pathway to rice grain for producing new valuable compounds.
