Research Description

“Reproductive strategy” is essential to adapt against environment change and maintain the species. I focus on this “reproductive strategy” (1) switching of reproductive mode between asexual reproduction and sexual reproduction, (2) sex determination, (3) germ cell differentiation. I would like to establish “reproductive strategy” as a novel branch of science integrated by evolution, ecology and developmental biology.
