WELCOME MESSAGE / ウェルカムメッセージ

Welcome to our website. Our laboratory is interested in studying the role of microorganisms in its natural habitat focusing mainly on unknown or uncultivable bacteria. To achieve this, we focus on the development of biotechnological methods to ease their manipulation and try to further understand their unique genetic traits via bacterial genetics. In addition, we also drive towards the exploitation of environmental microbes for important and unique genes or metabolic clusters applicable in industry using functional metagenomics. Please refer to our research projects for the current topics we are indulged in.

モリ研のウェブサイトへようこそ. 私たちの研究室では新規・未同定環境微生物の有効利用および生態・役割・遺伝的バックグラウンドの理解を目指し、分子生物学的手法を基盤とした技術開発を行っています.更に、メタゲノミクスを用いて産業界に適用可能な重要かつユニークな遺伝子および代謝クラスターのスクリーニングにも取り組んでいます.興味のある方は、研究内容のページで私たちが現在取り組んでいる研究プロジェクトを参照して下さい.

We renewed the contents of our website. Please stay tuned for more updates.



For the Fall Biotechnology and Life Science Softball competition, our team placed 4th. It was close but I everyone involved had a lot of fun! Let's do our best for the next competition!



Our lab joined the 36th Japan Society of Microbial Ecology (JSME) Conference held in Hamamatsu, Shizuoka. It was a good experience for everyone who joined to know more about other research in the field and exchange ideas with other researchers and student!

We had our welcoming party for the new 3rd years! You can see pictures on the MEMBERS page!



We would like to welcome four third-year bachelor students to our lab; Haruna, Naoki, Tomoka, and Futaba! The more the merrier!



Our lab joined the 13th Asian-Pacific Marine Biotechnology Conference (APMBC23) held in Adelaide, Australia. It's the first and only international conference for our lab, but I think everyone that participated gained valuable experiences not only in terms of research, but with talking with the other international delegates as well. Congratulations to Adham for the Best 3-Minute Poster Presentations Award!

オーストラリアのアデレードで開催された第13回Asian-Pacific Marine Biotechnology Conference(APMBC23)学会にモリ研が参加しました。今年の初国際学会でしたが、研究の面だけではなく、多国籍の参加者との交流で貴重な経験になったでしょう。そして、最優秀3分ポスター発表賞を受賞したアダハム、おめでとうございます!


Our lab participated in a joined summer camp in Chiba for the first time after COVID-19, with labs from Nihon University, Tokyo University of Marine Science and Technology, and Kanto Gakuin University.



For the Spring Biotechnology and Life Science Softball competition this year, our team placed 2nd. What's important is that everyone had fun! Let's do our best for the next competition!



Yugo got a Presentation Award for his oral presentation, and Azumi got a Presentation Award for her poster presentation at the 23rd Marine Biotechnology Conference! Congratulations!



Jaeyoung and Yugo did oral presentations, and Adham, Azumi and Moka did poster presentations at the 23rd Marine Biotechnology Conference in Kanazawa, Ishikawa. Everyone had invaluable experiences.



We had a flower-watching gathering to celebrate spring and to start of the year on the right foot!
