RIKEN Quantitative Biology Center (QBiC) was closed at the end of March 2018. Since April 2018, all research and development activities of QBiC were moved to RIKEN Center for Biosystems Dynamics Research (BDR). For future updates please visit BDR's website.

Clarification of dynamic biological systems

In recent years, advances in fields such as biochemistry, molecular biology, and structural biology have led to rapid developments in the biological sciences. For the most part, such research has focused on the individual elements that constitute a biological system. To truly understand such systems, however, it is important to study the complex spatiotemporal relationships that ... read more >>
