Report: SAKURA Exchange Program in Science

The Sakura Exchange Program in Science (Japan-Asia Youth Exchange Program in Science), which is administered by the Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST), was implemented at Graduate School of Science and Engineering, Saitama University from October 20th to November 9th, 2015. In this program, we hosted 2 young researchers from Malaysia Palm Oil Board (MPOB) and held several technical training, such as functional analysis of plant transcription factors, operational method of LC/MS etc. Detailed report is here

【Seminar Info】8Mar2016(Tue) Speaker: Dr.Hoe-Han Goh(Institute of Systems Biology, Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia)

Date:8/Mar/2016 (Tue) 16 :20~17:30 Place:Lecture Room9, Faculty of Science -Bldg 2, Saitama University Speaker:Dr. Hoe-Han Goh (Plant Biotechnology Center, Institute of Systems Biology, Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia) Title:INTEGRATING GENOMICS, TRANSCRIPTOMICS, PROTEOMICS, METABOLOMICS AND BIOINFORMATICS TO REVEAL THE BIOLOGY OF PLANTS AND MICROBES Summary:The field of biology has moved to a big data era since the past decade with the advancement of omics approaches. High throughput techniques of next-generation sequencing and tandem mass spectrometry coupled with bioinformatic analysis allow us to study complex biological network at different molecular levels. Since the establishment of INBIOSIS in 2005, we champion systems biology approach in the study of tropical plants, namely, Polygonum minus, Garcinia mangostana, Nepenthes spp., …
