Marine Bioresources Chemistry
Marine living things contain many kinds of useful compounds. Our laboratory focuses on maximal utilization of marine resources by deeply understanding the characteristics of marine biomolecules from the viewpoint of chemistry. Main research themes are on novel analytical methods, isolation and purification procedures, composition characteristics, chemical structures, biological functions, health benefits, and stabilization of proteins, lipid related and low molecular compounds from marine origin. Education of our laboratory is based on above research activities and the lectures on bio-analytical chemistry, bio-molecular chemistry, and bi-functional chemistry of marine biomolecules.
