Purpose

We will, in the spirit of Omic Space, continue with our endeavors to discover knowledge and strategies of biological survival.

The discovery of life strategies essentially refer to understanding living organisms as functional entities in the form of diverse species derived from complex microstructures. In order to achieve a true understanding of life and translate it into industrial applications, it is imperative to advance the cause of integrated research on biological systems across a comprehensive scope of information, structure and function. Since its founding in 1998, our thriving research community (comprising 5 groups and one facility) has actively explored the many strata of knowledge in Omic Space and illuminated the networks linking these strata. We have successfully built an unparalleled research system boasting features that are unique in the world. The originality of the system is matched only by its numerous groundbreaking achievements at the forefront of international research. To date, not only has GSC’s rigorous research established the institution as a leader of genomic sciences in Japan, but also has spread its prestige around the world.

In order to steadily engage scientists in close partnerships in genomic sciences, we have recently launched a virtual version of the Genomic Sciences Research Complex. With this new innovation, we will, in the spirit of Omic Space, continue with our endeavors to discover knowledge and strategies of biological survival. We also hope to continue to play a pivotal role in the global dissemination of Japanese scientific knowledge, by facilitating information exchange among researchers of allied disciplines in the genomic sciences and promoting the formation of research networks.
