  • Our laboratory studies the following themes making good use of both calculation ability of a computer owned in the laboratory as well as the infinite spirit and imagination of the students and teachers. The theme group is composed of two axes. The first axis has its base on the biological questions, and it aims to solve the mystery by applying the existing methods. In the case that the existing methods do not fit, we might develop new methods by ourselves. Another axis has its base on the technical questions and aims drastic improvement of the existing computational biology’s methods as well as development of new methods. In fact, single themes have both aspects, but they tend to have a main axis out of two. Each researcher’s preference determines which axis they focus on. Professor has his base on the biological questions and sometimes develops new technologies, if necessary.
