We are elucidating how microorganisms inhabit by interacting with each other, symbiotic hosts, and the environment from experimental and massive statistical data analyses. We particularly focus on the effects of microorganisms on climate change, pathogenic microbial dynamics in living spaces, and antibiotic resistance in fisheries farms.
Study of homeostasis maintenance mechanism by analysis of bacterial flora and microbial dynamics in the environment through the massive parallel sequencing.
Research on the connection between abnormalities and normality through microbial interaction analysis and holobiome analysis.
Experimental and bioinformatic studies of bacterial evolution and diversity by comparative (meta) genome analysis.
Basic research on environmental design using artificially mixed microorganisms.
Search for useful environmental microorganisms from culture based studies (Bioprospectings).
