We report our recent progress on extragalactic spectroscopic and continuum observations, including HCN(J = 1-0), HCO+(J = 1-0), and CN(N = 1-0) imaging surveys of local Seyfert and starburst galaxies using the Nobeyama Millimeter Array, high-J CO observations (J = 3-2 observations using the Atacama Submillimeter Telescope Experiment (ASTE) and J = 2-1 observations with the Submillimeter Array) of galaxies, and λ 1.1 mm continuum observations of high-z violent starburst galaxies using the bolometer camera AzTEC mounted on ASTE.
