Orchid

Orchid is one of the most evolved plant。We also perform taxonomical(Sawa et al., 2006, Fukunaga et al., 2008)、ecological(Fukunaga et al., 2008)analysis。
 We also have some B type or C type floral mutants which show petal to stamen or stamen to petal, respectively. Especially for C type mutants, we already isolated suppressor mutants which show WT looking phenotype, indicating that these mutants were caused by transposon. We are now trying to isolate the transposon from orchid, Phalaenopsis.
