His main research concerns Biochemistry, Streptomyces, Stereochemistry, Microbiology and Antibiotics. His Biochemistry study is mostly concerned with Enzyme, Sterol O-acyltransferase, Biological activity, Enzyme inhibitor and Fermentation. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Heterologous expression and Biosynthesis.
He frequently studies issues relating to Amino acid and Stereochemistry. His study looks at the intersection of Microbiology and topics like Bacteria with Antimicrobial and Isolation. His Streptomyces avermitilis study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Secondary metabolism and Mutant, Streptomyces coelicolor.
Satoshi Omura spends much of his time researching Stereochemistry, Biochemistry, Microbiology, Antibiotics and Streptomyces. His Stereochemistry study frequently draws parallels with other fields, such as Penicillium. His Biochemistry and Enzyme, Biosynthesis, Biological activity, Enzyme inhibitor and Fermentation investigations all form part of his Biochemistry research activities.
The subject of his Biological activity research is within the realm of In vitro. His research investigates the link between Microbiology and topics such as Bacteria that cross with problems in Antimicrobial. His is involved in several facets of Streptomyces study, as is seen by his studies on Streptomycetaceae, Actinomycetales and Streptomyces avermitilis.
Stereochemistry, Microbiology, Biochemistry, Total synthesis and Antibiotics are his primary areas of study. His Stereochemistry research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Cyclic peptide, Structure–activity relationship, Chemical synthesis and Stereoselectivity. His studies deal with areas such as Peptidoglycan, 16S ribosomal RNA, Bacteria, Penicillium and Taxonomy as well as Microbiology.
His study brings together the fields of Streptomyces and Biochemistry. He has researched Streptomyces in several fields, including Type three secretion system and Biosynthesis. In his work, Mitemcinal and Cytotoxicity is strongly intertwined with Pharmacology, which is a subfield of Antibiotics.
Satoshi Omura mostly deals with Stereochemistry, Biochemistry, Microbiology, Streptomyces and Streptomyces avermitilis. His Stereochemistry research includes themes of Combinatorial chemistry, Chemical synthesis and Stereoisomerism. His work deals with themes such as Verticillium sp. and Ascaris suum, which intersect with Biochemistry.
His work on Antibiotics as part of general Microbiology study is frequently connected to Mycobacterium smegmatis, therefore bridging the gap between diverse disciplines of science and establishing a new relationship between them. The Streptomyces study combines topics in areas such as Antiparasitic, Type three secretion system, Heterologous expression and Biosynthesis. His Streptomyces avermitilis research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Oxidoreductase and Gene cluster, Gene, Dioxygenase.
