Outline of R&D

Systems science of biological dynamics is a field of life science aiming at understanding and engineering life as a dynamic system, which is expected to make a great impact on all fields of science in the 21st century as a new trend in life science. In this field, a massive amount of new types of data are being produced for a variety of biological phenomena; the data contain quantitative information about spatiotemporal dynamics of biological system. To make best use of these data, this project develops a system for database integration so that all databases in this field will be developed and integrated at the same time.
