Welcome my site!

I am a microbiologist studying in the fileds of environmental microbiology and applied microbiology.
My research goal is to cultivate all uncultured microorganisms living in the universe.
My research interest to date is cultivation of uncultured microbes that are indicated as ecologically
important microbial components by culture-independent molecular approaches.
To cultivate these microbes, I use not only conventional cultivation techniques but also new cultivation
methods I developed and introduction of new technologies from other fields.
I believe cultivation and isolation of microbes is one of the important challenges,
because isolation of microbes is the most convincing and direct way to know exactly how they make a living.
