History (1):
  • 1995/10
    Department of Life Science and Biotechnology was established
Purpose of establishment:
The department promotes education and research
activities that aim to elucidate and exploit the
functions of a variety of organisms, based on
biological and chemical knowledge. Teaching and
research are also focusing on the application of
useful functions of organisms to biological and
chemical industries to produce foods, medicines,
pesticides, and agricultural, forest and aquatic
Business overview:
The department offers programs for students who wish
to obtain broad knowledge and particular expertise of
bioscience and biotechnology.
Research in the department is concerned with a boundary
region between biology and chemistry. To elucidate the
mechanism of life at the levels of constituent
molecules, cells and individuals, a variety of advanced
techniques are used, including gene manipulation,
analysis of genetic information, tissue culture, cell
fusion, protein engineering, immunological techniques,
organic synthesis, instrumental analysis of molecular
The department consists of two courses including the
Division of Applied Bioscience and Biotechnology, the
Division of Biomecular and Bioinformation Sciences.
