Microbial ecology is a fascinating field that examines the various environments in which microbes can thrive and their potential applications to human life. In this seminar, I will delve into four main topics:
- The diverse habitats in which microbes can be found and their beneficial uses for humans.
- The methods used to study the microbiome, including metagenomic analysis.
- The ways in which the microbiota is relevant to research fields and everyday life, through examples from iTHEMS researchers and personal experiences.
- My own research on the microbiota of the Jigokudani onsen (Snow monkey park hot spring).
This seminar aims to provide an in-depth understanding of microbial ecology for those who may not be familiar with the field, including those from diverse research backgrounds such as mathematics, astrophysics, condensed matter physics, particle physics, biology, etc. By the end of this seminar, you will have a clear understanding of microbial ecology and its significance in various fields. I hope this seminar will excite your interest and inspire you to join us in exploring the exciting world of microbial ecology.
