Microbiomes in the environment
We aim to investigate the role of microbial communities in environment, which are largely untapped resources by using culture-independent approach. Coupled with next generation sequencing (NGS), it allows the evaluation of bacterial diversity and detection of thousands of organisms The fundamental questions that we try to answer in our research include
1) How diverse of microbes in the specified environment?
2) Which species or which groups of microbes are dominant in the specified environment?
3) What and how these microbes are doing?
4) What factors are controlling their activities?
