1.) Orchid
To collect the genetic resources of Taiwan native orchid, to cross breed new cultivars, and also to
develop techniques in vitro seed germination, micropropagation, and cultural management.
●More than 50 cross combinations are accomplished each year with different charaters in multistem,
multiflower, and fragrance.
●Twenty-seven new hybrids are accepted by the RHS, and superior individuals are selected for plant
variety right applications.
●Interspecific crosses in Calanthe breeding performed to develop superior cultivars suitable for
lowland areas.
●Superior Calanthe and Phalaenopsis individuals are frequently awarded in both domestic and
international orchid exhibitions in recent years.
●Applied the marker-assisted selection approach for Phalaenopsis to provide the basis on choosing
parents and to increase the breeding efficiency.
●Analyzing phylogenetic relation between species in orchids to conserve the biodiversity.
2.)Others
●Protected variety right on horticultural cultivars of strawberry, poinsettia, kalanchoe, and
Phalaenopsis.

Mass propagation technique of orchid seeding and Exploitation of molecular marker for identifying plant varieties.
