Environmental Biofunctio Team

We can find living organisms in quite diverse variety of environments exhibiting a widely diverse functions. Our research group is developing useful technologies through an approach to utilize such diverse biological functions. Particularly, we are doing research including host-microbe interaction in insect digestive tract, fundamental and applied studies on microbial energy metabolisms in anaerobic environments, and molecular mechanisms of bioluminescent animals that are living in the dark sea or dark night and emit light for communication or camouflage.
