     We sometimes find interesting genes or proteins in various organisms, such as plants and lower vertebrates.  In some cases, these are also found in human.    Thus, we study human genetics and evolutions of these novel genes and proteins.   We are currently working on two such subjects.    Those are also related to carcinogenesis.
