The Division of Applied Life Sciences aims to research various functions and life processes occurring among animals, plants, and microorganisms by fully utilizing bioscience and biotechnology techniques. Our objective is to develop applied technologies through collaboration and competition in various domains of advanced life sciences. To achieve this objective, we will work together in education and research related to the bioscience of animals, plants, and microorganisms in order to develop useful resources and to develop talented researchers who will make further contributions to the development of new biotechnologies.
Applied Life Sciences
Applied Biological Sciences
By viewing the living environment macroscopically, the Course in Applied Biological Sciences mainly conducts educational and research activities into the function and role of each organism, the interactions among organisms, organismal symbiotic systems, and the cycling of biological resources.
Focusing on biological functions and life processes, the Course in Biomolecular Chemistry investigates these aspects on the cellular and molecular levels and conducts educational and research activities in applied fields based on this research.
The educational and research activities of the Course in Integrated Bioscience are to analyze function as it is related to the growth, nutrition physiology, quality, and disease tolerance of plant resources on the levels of genes and proteins, and to improve or modify plant resources through molecular genetic methods.
Plant Production Science
The Course in Plant Production Science conducts educational and research activities into the identification and collection of genetic plant resources, development of plants with new functions, evaluation and propagation of developed plants, development of cultivation techniques for continuous use, and management of the ecosystem with regard to genetically modified plants.
