We studied the supernova nucleosynthesis by bringing interdisciplinary expertise on element genesis from astronomy, astrophysics and nuclear physics. We found that the inverted neutrino mass hierarchy, which is one of the fundamental questions in particle physics and cosmology, is preferred statistically by taking account of the recent discovery of 13-mixing angle. We also made several progress in quantum mechanical calculations of unmeasured neutrino-nucleus interaction cross sections, new model construction of the supernovae and gamma-ray bursts, new proposal of nuclear cosmic-clock, identification of the origin of the p-elements which was a long-standing unresolved problem since 1957, etc.
