Dr. KASHIWA Takeshi, Senior Researcher, Biological Resources and Post-harvest Division, received the "Young Scientist Award" at the World Soybean Research Conference 11 (WSRC11) held in Vienna, Austria, June 18-23, 2023, for his presentation on "Genome analysis of the pathogen causing Cercospora leaf blight and purple seed stain of soybean”.
This award is given to the presenter of an outstanding presentation at WSRC11, covering a broad range of soybean research, and is specifically intended for researchers 35 years old or younger. In this presentation, Dr. Kashiwa and his colleague reported a detailed genomic analysis and characterization of the pathogen that causes Cercospora leaf blight and purple seed stain in soybean, which are problems in soybean production worldwide. The results of this study are expected to provide basic molecular biological information for research on soybean fungal pathogens, including Cercospora spp.
