Graduate School Guide

Applied Life Sciences Course

Details of the courses

With a grounding in chemistry and biology, this course provides a comprehensive study of the life sciences incorporating both basic and applied aspects. Students will learn the regulatory mechanisms at all levels—molecular, cellular, and ontogenetic—of diverse life forms, and by making efficient use of microbial, plant and animal resources, will acquire the skills to develop high value-added substances, create new industries applying biological functions, produce useful substances, and construct a sustainable supply system of food and energy that will directly contribute to the enhancement of daily human life. The objective of this course is to provide an education in advanced bioscience and biotechnology with an international perspective that will foster human resources with problem-solving capabilities and inquiring minds who can conduct independent research contributing to local, national, and international industries.
