Course in Molecular Biology

There are numerous species of creature living on the earth. They have been evolved individually in response to dramatic changes of environments for approximately 3.5 billion years. Environmental factors, such as light, temperature, atmospheric gases, and water conditions greatly affect on the activity and characteristics of living organisms. On the other hand, living organisms themselves function as important environmental stabilizers by driving elemental circulation through their various metabolic activities. Our final goal is to ‘Understand the Relationship between Environments and Living Organisms at the Molecular Levels.’ We are also trying to develop basis of effective bioremediation, biomonitoring, and bioproduction technologies.
