Hee-Jong Koh has his expertise in rice genetics and breeding for higher yield and better quality. He developed several mutants on morphological and quality traits, and cloned genes responsible for the mutant phenotypes. He has also studied natural variation in yield-related and quality traits demonstrating selection models for better genotypes in rice breeding programs. Recently, he edited a book “Current technologies in plant molecular breeding” published by Springer Verlag.
