    Based on “ Molecular Microbiology and Biotechnology ”, our laboratory is seeking solutions in tackling energy and environmental issues by taking advantages of the useful bioconversion capability of microorganisms and their enzymes. We are currently working on studying fundamental novel scientific knowledge and developing technologies for the conversion of renewable biomass to value-added chemicals, including biofuels, gasification, enzymes and fermentation.
