Prof. Izawa and me at Iriomotejima
In the 2011 joint summer field course, it is great honor to meet Professor Izawa in Iriomotejima. It is an unforgettable time.
Congratulations to Dr. Naohisa Wada, his research report has been published on NPJ Biofilms and Microbiomes. In this report, he discovers that microbial composition is a key for virulence differentiation of coral black band disease.

Our study about genger microbiome was reported in a popular newspaper.
One cooperation work with Prof. Minamisawa at Tohoku University and the core lab of NanoSIMS, Academia Sinica. We found the first in vivo evidence for the co-occurrence of methane oxidation-nitrogen fixation in a single bacterial cell in rice root.
(This paper was recommended by Faculty Opinions (UK) as a top 2.0% paper in Plant Biology.)

We recently published one work that probiotics can be a solution to improve ginger cultivation in a re-used land. Congratulations to Wade and Shan-Hua.
We published the result of a five-year work in Science Advances on July 7th. Particularly we thanks to Dr. Naohisa Wada and Mr. Ming-Chung Hsu for their great contributions to the work. In this work, we provide an unprecedented high-resolution picture of coral-associated microbial aggregates on a wide range of aspects, including ecology, number, density, distribution, genomes, chemical traits and so on.

Happy New Year, 2022！！！

Congratulations to all the authors! We have another four papers published recently. Here particularly would like to point out a paper (Yu-Hsing Chen et al., Environmental Microbiology, 2021) which has been conducted more than 10 years and finally was published. It is really exciting!

Congratulations! Finally our 7-years study has been accepted. The work is to test the hypothesis of Functional Redundancy of microbial community in which we conducted in situ empirical experiments to test the hypothesis of Functional Redundancy. The conclusion of this study is that functional redundancy is dynamic in a given microbial community, and we propose a new hypothesis, most of microbial community should be dynamic partial functional redundancy.
