Development of Information Technology for Life Science, particularly in the areas of Text-mining and Database
To understand life as a system, we are working to integrate and analyze various biomedical data and knowledge. Specific problems are, for example, how to search for knowledge and experimental facts written in research papers and textbooks, and how to organize them so that they can be handled on computers. We are developing softwares for the above purposes and frameworks to store, express, and compute the complicated knowledge on computers.
