Yong Weon Seo

Crop Sciences
University of Korea, Korea


Yong Weon Seo has his expertise in wheat molecular breeding for enhancing yield and improvement of stress tolerance. He uses wheat-rye translocations to introduce alien genetic resources into common wheat. Numerous marker systems tagging rye specific regions were developed by his group (NZJC 45:150, 43:241, Genomics Data 5:151, Genes Genet Syst 89:159, Genes and Genomics 35:795). His research focuses on functional analysis of genes responsible for early maturity that is a prerequisite trait for double cropping in Korea is one of his major projects (Mol Bio l Rep 43:1435, 40:969, Genes Genet Syst 90:293, Biologia Plantarum 58:218). He uses Brachypodium distachyon as a model system for molecular analysis of interest genes. Mutation breeding and mutagenesis in wheat are another his expertise (Cellulose 22:2419, Int J Radiat Biol 91:407, Radiat Environ Biophys 53:677).
