Outline of R&D

We will construct a database integMET, in which metabolome data are integrated as a knowledge network based on trends in metabolite fluctuations and the similarity of metadata. This database will enable large-scale data reanalysis of metabolomics data systematized as a network, and will provide a comprehensive understanding of the relationship between metabolism and biological phenomena. Furthermore, we aim to create a database that will lead to the creation of new cross-disciplinary research and knowledge, such as the application of the metabolome knowledge graph structure in which research information is integrated to data science and AI research.
