Based on the traditional rice breeding system, the lab actively continues the expansion of inheritable mutated materials to enlarge genetic background, the use of molecular markers in the trait selection, and the introgression of desirable genes or alleles from the wild relatives of cultivated rice. These efforts have generated diverse new rice varieties with various purposes that boost sustainable rice industry in Taiwan. Some of the new rice varieties are Japonica Tainung No. 67, 69, 71, 75, 77, 79, glutinous 73; and glutinous Indica Tainung No. 2 and 21.
