Overview of Graduate School
Center for Biosciences and Informatics
The new field that integrates wet biology, represented by molecular and cellular biologies, and computer sciences has been considered as one of the most important fields for life science in the 21st century. While extensive and comprehensive measurement systems for important biomolecules, such as nucleic acid, protein and sugar chain, and interaction among them being developed, accumulation of staggering volume of information has been increased rapidly. Our prime task is therefore in development of human resources capable of analyzing the life process from viewpoints of systems biology and informatics. In the Center for Biosciences and Informatics, we are working on a wide scope of subjects including utilization of life-related functions and screening of new medicines in addition to clarification of the life process.
Key words: Protein Engineering, Proteomics, Clinical Engineering Molecular Cell Biology, Glycoengineering, Bioinformatics, Bio-imaging
