The division consists of 4 education and research groups:’Applied Molecular Biology’, ‘Plant Breeding Science’, ‘Botany and Agronomy’, and ‘Animal Production’, all of which are engaged in education for development and utilization of crop, animal and plant resources, and for establishment of their production technologies, thereby allowing sustainable reproduction. The major themes of our division are:(1)development of biological production systems based on molecular biology, (2) establishment of practical plant breeding by functional analysis of genes and genomes, (3)elucidation of growth mechanisms of plants under various environmental conditions, (4)elucidation of factors and their interrelationships for production of domestic animals. The division also promotes talent to contribute to agriculture through the education and research activities in close connection with Experiment and Livestock Farms in Field Science Center for Northern Biosphere.
