Ki-Byung Lim received his BSc, MSc and PhD degree in department of Horticulture from Kyungpook National University, Korea. He has experience at the seed company for 10 years. He studied plant height controlling by DIF theory in young seedlings for his 1st PhD thesis. He acheived 2nd PhD at the Wageningen University in the field of Plant Genetics and Breeding for Lilium species. He discovered a novel mechanism 'IMR' of 2n-gamete formation originated from abnormal meiosis in F1 interspecific hybrids. He had post-doctoral fellow at the department of biodiversity and breeding in Plant Research International, Wageningen, The Netherlands from 1997 to 2002. Then he worked for RDA, Korea as a researcher for 4 years since 2002. He involved in International Brassica Genome Project with responsible for the chromosome mapping by annotation of BAC clones and markers through FISH techniques. He studied intensibly chromosome analysis of Brassicaceae with emphasis of the relationship of three basic genomes. He moved to Kyungpook National University since 2006. His major experties are molecular and coventional cytogenetics, introgression breeding through interspecific hybridization, polyploid genetics and breeding via mitotic and meiotic polypoidization.
