Features
I am proposing methodologies to design recombinant peptides and proteins with appropriate structures and functions in the medicinal, environmental, material, and nanotechnological fields, with molecular evolutional and domain shuffling engineering. At present, we have constructed the methodologies for efficient renaturation of functional proteins from inclusion bodies expressed in bacteria, generation of peptides and proteins with the function of biomineralization, generation of peptides and proteins with affinity for inorganic materials to spontaneously make linkages between various nanomaterials, and high enhancement of cellulolytic enzyme activity induced by nanoclustering design on nanomaterials.

Targeted Application(s)/Industry
We hope the business partners in the in the medicinal, environmental, material, and nanotechnological fields would be interested in my approaches and we could conduct effective collaboration research with them.
