Comments My interests: Environmental biotechnology. Especially, I am interested in chemotaxis of environmental bacteria including plant pathogens and plant-growth promoting rhizobacteria. To establish ecological interaction such as symbiosis and plant infection, microbes should approach to their hosts and contact them. Many microbes use chemotaxis to facilitate the ecological interactions. I believe that we can control plant infection and plant-growth promoting activities by controlling bacterial chemotaxis in environment.
