Biological Information

This department was only recently established, with the aim of providing a synthesis of biological science and technology for the exploration of new frontiers in bio-pharmaceutical research and development. Emphasis is placed on the study of biological information, such as genetic information, intra- and inter- molecular and cellular signal transduction, electric-chemical signal conversion in nervous systems, and biomass-ecosystem interfaces. The elucidation of new fundamental principles and innovative applications stemming from studies in these fields are expected to provide a significant contribution to the solution of critical problems facing human beings in the twenty-first century.
