Development of marine ecosystem evaluation methods in the high throughput sequencing era.

Research Project Outline

Recent remarkable progresses in the DNA sequencing and bioinformatics technologies have made it possible to collect and analyze huge sequence data within short time. The present project aims at developing new analytical methods for DNA and RNA obtained from marine environments. The methods should reveal community structures and functions of organisms together with their environmental parameters, thus offering a promising new approach to evaluate environmental status.
