Features
Maintaining genetic diversity within a species is a major issue to conserve biodiversity and sustainable use. To monitor genetic diversity in natural and captive populations using adequate genetic markers is the most important step. We have focused aquatic organisms and studied the genetic diversity using an array of DNA analyses. Our research interest includes 1) genetic structure and phylogeography of natural populations in marine and freshwater organisms and 2) genetic management of commercially important species to contribute the stock enhancement programs.

Targeted Application(s)/Industry
Our skill can be applied to environmental assessment and fish resource management. We are collaborating with national institutes and giving advice to private environmental assessment companies.
