History (1):
  • 2001/04
    The Bioinformatics Center of the Institute for Chemical Research was established in order to promote basic and applied research in bioinformatics, to facilitate education and training in bioinformatics, and to provide the bioinformatics infrastructure that integrates genomic information and biomedical knowledge.
Purpose of establishment:
Our laboratories promote research in Bioinformatics
and the development of the foundation for an integrated
and extensive resource for the Bioscience.
Business overview:
In order to understand and utilize the information encoded in the genome, a
blueprint of life, it is necessary to develop both state-of-the-art informatics
technologies and excellent human resources. The Bioinformatics Center is involved
in basic research on the analysis of genomic and molecular information towards
understanding design principles of the biological systems, applications of
bioinformatics methods to pharmaceutical and medical sciences, development of
the KEGG database for deciphering the genome, and bioinformatics education and
training of young scientists.
