Development of new bioresource plant to contribute bioeconomy

Project

Plant is a renewable bioresource and inevitable for bioeconomy. We are developing new bioresource plant more suitable for its exploitation by employing our advanced technologies for the analysis of cell wall and woody substance, which is the world’s largest terrestrial biomass, and surface cuticle, which protects plant (Figs. 1, 2).
