Ecological perspective of dissemination of antibiotic resistance genes in marine environment
Professor Satoru Suzuki works in the Ehime University. He received PhD from Hokkaido University in Virology. His present expertise is marine microbial ecology by ecological and molecular biological approaches. His recent interests are in 1) Occurrence, latency and transfer of antibiotic resistance genes in marine and human-related aquatic environments. Resistances to tetracycline, sulfonamide and quinolone are targets. 2) Role of microbes for formation and decomposition of protein in marine environment. Proteases and refractory proteins are focused. He is the associate editor of journals “Frontiers in Microbiology” and “Microbes and Environments”.
