Research Area

Our research targets on complex microbial communities with significant functions from natural and human-related environments.We focus on the microbe-microbe and microbe-host interactions and the related eco-physiological and evolutionary processes. Based on the improvements of cultivation methods and understandings of the metabolic features, we are trying to culture and isolate those uncultured microbial lineages with key functions and applicable potentials.
