State Key Laboratory of Agrobiotechnology (CUHK)


The State Key Laboratory of Agrobiotechnology was established essentially in response to the overriding issue of food supply: how to increase agricultural output and safeguard food security and nutrition in a country of a billion-plus people. The laboratory builds on the relationship between CUHK and China Agricultural University (CAU), both leaders in agrobiotechnology, and the two universities will work together on the development of molecular biotechnology and its practical applications in terms of the increase of rice yields and the improvement of the nutritive value of rice and other crops.
