YAMADA Yoshiyuki

I have studied about the development of the species identification/virulent strain typing methods for a variety of gram-negative and -positive bacterial fish pathogens by PCR/PCR-RFLP and DNA sequencing during my phD.

Since I moved to Singapore in 2000, I have learned the variety of techniques on molecular bacteriology/virology fields throughout the academic researches on pathogens such as tuberculosis, coronavirus and influenza viruses.

I'm recently back to the bacterial population genetics (tuberculosis) after joining SSHSPH in July 2018. Here, I would like to contribute more through a molecular biologist's points of view and to help strong connection between the laboratories and SSHSPH's computational bioinformaticians.
