We are studying the environmental assessment and develops advanced methods of impacts of GM crops on Agro-ecosystem. (2003-)
I was involved in 1.Effects of consecutive cultivation of glyphosate-tolerant canola and soybean on vegetation, composition of insects and soil microorganisms(2003-2005)., 2. Gene flow from GM crops to non-GM crops(2004-2008) and 3. Monitoring of GM canola around importing port (2004-2008). From 2008 to now, I have also the project "Evaluation of effects of abiotic stress tolerance crops on agro-ecosystem".
2005-2010, I am researching the project "Spontaneous hybridization between GM and wild soybean under field condition". And recently, I am collecting the ecological information of wild soybean in natural habitats.
