My main research theme was evolutionary and computational biology. My research activities have been mainly focused on overcoming methodological and computational limitations to large-scale data analyses associated with the forthcoming era of big ‘omics’ data. At present I am working as a manager of R&D in a new start-up company originated by Kyoto University, Japan (https://www.sunlitseedlings.com/). My current mission is the application of biotechnology and bioinformatics regarding soil-microbiome and plant-endophytes, that  are derived from Toju laboratory (https://sites.google.com/site/ecoltj/home), into current agricultural and environmental businesses.
