Welcome to the Institute for Advanced Biosciences 

 

The Institute for Advanced Biosciences, Keio University, is an academic research institute pioneering the new life science field of "Systems Biology", using both experimental and computational biology. There are several groups working in collaboration, focusing mainly on genome biology and engineering, genome design and synthetic biology, metabolic engineering, proteomics, metabolomics, RNA biology, bioinformatics and computational biology. Using cutting-edge technologies, intracellular components can be analyzed comprehensively to construct computer simulation models that can find numerous applications in fields such as biomedical, environmental, and agricultural science.

Experimental and computational facilities are located in Tsuruoka, Yamagata prefecture, in northern Japan while the SFC campus, in the Tokyo area, hosts the bioinformatics laboratory and most undergraduate curricular activities.
