Future Research Plans, Research Prospects, and Joint Research Potential 【 display / non-display

  • Motility of octopus sperm is too complicated to document do far. If we can dictate its movement in detail, it will be helpful for studying other sperm and/or flagellar motility. Inhibitors may evoke new profile of flagellar movement and showing that ability of flagellar is wider than we think. Analysis technnique we have built may useful for other flagellar motility via colaborating with other reserchers.
