Research Topics

Development of complex structure calculation technology

Calculate protein-protein docking using high-throughput numerical libraries and research on, protein-carbohydrate chain interactions by large-scale parallel computer processing.

Development of functional prediction technology

Enable the prediction of the structures (RNA) and functional sites based on protein-complex structure, and ultimately the prediction of protein function through the integration of calculation and network dynamical analysis.

Establishment of applied large-scale calculation technology platform

Develop fundamental technologies that will provide a foundation to support drug discovery and biological polymer regulation (intermolecular interaction) research, based in store of quantum chemistry, molecular dynamics, and molecular docking computational technologies that have been developed to date.
