The research direction of microorganisms covers all aspects of human production and life. In the medical field, there are researches on pathogenic bacteria / resistant bacteria and intestinal flora, agricultural fields, animal and plant pathogenic bacteria and drug-resistant bacteria and agricultural production research; industrial fields, Research on industrial microorganisms or industrial bacteria, industrial production environment and other microbial communities. The research objects include research from individuals to communities, and the products cover all levels of the genome, transcriptome, and proteins, including denovo sequencing and resequencing of bacteria / fungi, sequencing of 16S / 18S / ITS amplicons, metagenome research, and research with microorganisms. Related protein research.
