Support Us

The National Institute of Genetics was established in 1949, and since has produced many outstanding scientific achievements including the neutral theory of molecular evolution by Dr. Motoo Kimura. In 1984, we undertook a leading role in promoting research in whole academic communities as an Inter-University Research Institute for joint use by universities. In 1988, The Graduate University for Advanced Studies (SOKENDAI) was established and we started to provide graduate education as the Department of Genetic. With the incorporation in 2004 of the Inter-University Research Institute, we reorganized as Research Organization of Information and Systems (ROIS) together with three other institutes, the National Institute of Informatics, the Institute for Statistical Mathematics and the National Institute of Polar Research for the purpose of addressing a challenge in the future and a leading edge research in life science at an international level, from the perspective of information and systems.
As a core research institute of life science, we are also involved in projects for the development of intellectual infrastructure such as bio resource and database.
We would like to ask for your support for the improvement and development of our research and education by making a donation.
