  • Department of Integrative Genomics

    Department of Integrative Genomics investigates the relationship between genomic diversity and diseases based on the databases created from biological specimens collected during surveys of the Tohoku Medical Megabank Project Community-Based Cohort Study and the Tohoku Medical Megabank Project Birth and Three-Generation Cohort Study. The department conducts omics analysis of biological specimens including genomic sequencing, transcriptomics, metabolomics, and proteomics to generate databases. The databases will be shared with the research community as a basis for advancing medical innovation. By collaborating with other research institutes inside and outside of Japan, we would like to investigate how genomic diversity is related to the cause of diseases.
