Welcome to Kazuaki Matsui's laboratory

My laboratory is interested in the functions of microbial ecosystems on bacterial horizontal gene transfer and microbial interactions involving the fate of allochthonous genes. I am especially interested in the dissemination nature of the antibiotics and mercury resistance genes in urban aquatic environment. We have now started the diversity and function of bacteria in sewers that represent a recently formed urban microbil ecosystem.
The research relies on the both ecological and molecular approaches, such as analytical measurement of field, microcosm experiments, DNA sequencing, and PCR cloning.
These research shed light on the microbial consortia and their functions in urbanized aquatic environment.
