With 24 hrs, 365days open lab, we can come/go whenever we want to research. It is your responsibility how you arrange your research life here. Most of the research proceeds project-based, therefore if you are/aren't a super programmer/mathmatician, or any background, you will find something to work upon from the day1. I like the chemistry here that everyone respect the way they live, not compelling what professor believes the researcher should be. Even with the freedom, you are asked to write papers as many as you can though!
Miyano lab mainly takes in students from the department of computer science. It is, however, possible to study not only informatics but also statistics and so forth as long as the topic is related to bioinformatics.
Hi, folks! I' m a french student and before have studied at Ecole polytechnique. When being in france, I really wanted to be a sushi master, but in france there was no good sushi restaurant I could work at that time. Thus, I decided to go to Japan to be a sushi master, but …
I have been a member of Miyano laboratory for 4 years. I started to learn biology when I was a student in Department of Information Science through bioinformatics education programs. I really want students in informatics to be interested in bioinformatics. Many algorithms and techniques in informatics can also be adopted into bioinformatics. Students in Miyano laboratory can perform parallel computations by using the supercomputers in Human Genome Center, Insititute of Medical Science, University of Tokyo. It's very attractive for students in informatics, isn't it? We welcome your challenge to bioinformatics. :p
