Research Summary

Medaka is a small egg-laying fresh water fish found in brooks and rice paddies in Eastern Asia. This species has a long history as an experimental animal especially in Japan, and many inbred lines and mutants have been established so far. We are currently studying the evolution of the sex determination system using medaka and relatives, the genetic bases for PGC migration and pigment cell differentiation, and the development of the medaka disease model for diabetes. In addition to these activities, our laboratory is stepping forward to lead the National BioResource Project Medaka (NBRP Medaka).

PhD Program

This laboratory is currently recruiting graduate students.
