My research field is bioinformatics related to genome analysis. I have determined the genome sequences of several kinds of plants (crops) and bacteria. Furthermore, I investigate variation of genome sequences among plants or cultivars by computational approaches.

I have determined the draft genome sequences of several crops, such as eggplant, radish, eucalyptus, jatropha, strawberry, by using sequence data from next-generation sequencers (NGSs). Furthermore, I investigate the DNA polymorphism among the cultivars in tomato, and predicted the mutation effects on gene functions.
