Research Topics

Genome sequences serve as both foundations for life activities and records for evolutionary histories of the life. Transcriptomes fully contain information about the active genes in genomes, and metagenomes contain information about ecology of environmental microbes. We analyze these data by adopting bioinformatic approaches to decipher how the life adapts to environmental changes, what types of interactions between lives and the environment produce ecosystem dynamics, and how lives and the earth have interwoven their long history.
