The aim of CBBD-OIL is to elucidate mechanisms of biological phenomena in a collaborative effort between Waseda University and National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST). Waseda University accumulates huge biological data depending on the latest experimental technologies, and has advanced mathematical methods. AIST has several types of bioinformatics techniques and theoretical biology methods for biological data. By combining the strengths of both organizations, we try to reveal the systems behind cellular biology and living organisms. We focus on the research and development of advanced computational methods that include but are not limited to:

Furthermore, by building up an intensive industry-academic-government network, CBBD-OIL provides opportunities to strengthen goal-oriented fundamental research, which leads to “bridging” the gap between researchers and private sectors, with our cutting-edge technologies of life information analysis that is soon to become the global standard.

FOR INDUSTRY: CBBD-OIL FORUM

One of our important missions is to “supply advanced technologies to industries in need”. As we work on understanding industrial needs, we develop suitable and advanced technologies for them. Our technologies are applied to all biological fields, such as pharmaceutical, food and health industries, and so on. We aim to build a bridge between academic researchers and private companies by providing them with the latest knowledge through informatics analysis using different types of biological data, such as large omics data (genomics, proteomics, metagenomics, etc. measured in biosphere), clinical data, and various types of life and health information, in an integrative way.

In the bioinformatics field, there are many types of techniques depending on the data type. When you apply bioinformatics techniques to your data, the most suitable method should be selected. Subsequently, we use an appropriate amount of time for consultation on technologies and research that your company is interested in, before we move on to conclude an NDA (non-disclosure agreement) if necessary. After clarifying your specific needs, we provide technical guidance and proper support by experts of the relevant fields on demand.
