Laboratory for Microbiome Sciences

RIKEN Center for Integrative Medical Sciences

The aim of our team is to comprehensively elucidate the host-microbial interaction by the analysis of the ecological, functional, and medical features of the microbial communities such as human gut, oral, skin microbiomes, and various symbiotic communities in other species. Our team also develops technologies of bioinformatics and statistics for the analysis of large metagenomic and genomic datasets of microbiomes and microbes produced by the next-generation sequencers.
