Understanding for molecular mechanisms underlaying fertilization and embryonic development is prerequisite to promote preservation of genetic diversity or reproduction in endangered species. From the standpoint, my goals are 1) to understand molecular and cellular basis in processes ranging from gametogenesis to early embryonic development, using domestic animals, 2) to apply the resultant knowledge to inventing new technologies useful for the production of animal resources.
