After the turmoil of COVID-19 (not finished though) and rejuvenation of Science Building #1 (half done), the lab has relocated on the sixth floor in May 2021 and is rebooting now.
The lab has been studying on cricket genomes for a while and finally published a paper “The Draft Genome Dataset of the Asian Cricket Teleogryllus occipitalis for Molecular Research toward Entomophagy“ by Kosuke Kataoka, Ryuhei Minei, Keigo Ide, Atsushi Ogura, Haruko Takeyama, Makio N. Takeda Suzuki, Kei Yura and Toru Asahi on Frontiers in Genetics.
