ABOUT US

Laboratory of Applied Protistology (LAP) is established in April 2022 by Asiloglu Rasit thanks to full support from Prof. Harada Naoki, members of Faculty of Agriculture, and the ‘Swing-by’ program at Niigata University, Japan. Our ultimate aim is to become a world-leading laboratory through high quality and novel research on diverse aspects of the protistology. 

At LAP, we work hard to enhance the knowledge on protist ecology & function through natural and environemental sciences. Then, we aim to apply the scientific knowledge we have gained to develop practical & sustainable applications of protists in agriculture and life. 

Our research topics are closely related to soil sciences, plant sciences, microbial ecology, and applied microbiology.
