Soil Microbiology


Basic and applied research on microorganisms useful for soil/environmental protection and sustainable agricultural/chemical production, including analysis/control of mixed culture system for biomass conversion/waste treatment/plant production, and ecology/function of thermophilic microorganisms for biodegradation of organic waste

Research Theme

  1. Ecology and utilization of thermotolerant / thermophilic microorganisms (Lactic acid fermentation, Open system, Biodegradation, Plant growth promoting bacteria)
  2. Analysis and breeding of microbial consortium (Microbial community structure, Uncultured microorganism, Metagenome, FISH)
  3. Systematic microbial transformation of biomass waster (Biorefinery, Composting, Wastewater treatment, Nitrogen removal, Liquid fertilizer)/li>
