Research on utilization of biological resource and database



Associate Professor



Research Summary

In the field of life science, innovative technologies such as genome sequencing and genome editing give rise to new findings day after day. To advance research and facilitate discoveries, the effective utilization of bio-resources and databases plays a critical role. Our laboratory has been researching and developing databases and information retrieval systems for the National BioResource Project (NBRP) and integrated database project for life science.
We continue to improve the quality of databases and studies to use biological resources.

Our laboratory is in charge of National BioResource Project information center to provide biological resources for the researcher.
