I started my career as a researcher in Drosophila genetics, but ever since I joined the research institute of the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries, I have been engaged in research on honey bees and beekeeping. I retired in March last year, but I continue to work as a contract researcher at the same research institute. As a researcher, I have conducted research in various fields related to honey bees. In recent years, I have mainly been studying the honey bee diseases and damage caused by insecticides. I am currently focusing my efforts on research related to genome editing and genome analysis.
