NEW PAPER: Hiraiwa T, Nakai Y, Yamada TG, Tanimoto R, Kimura H, Matsumoto Y, Miki N, Hiroi N and Funahashi A. "Quantitative analysis of sensitivity to Wnt3a gradient in determination of the pole-to-pole axis of mitotic cells by using a microfluidic device."
We investigate How is life in the way of Quantitative biology and Systems biology to answer What can make a system lifelike? It is another expression of What is life for us.
We develop/fabricate/use microfluidic device.
We use Qdots, modified GFP, IR laser to control cellular level temperature.
We love optics, taking bioimaging, and analyse them.
We use model bacteria, which turn over quickly, to investigate evolution and adaptation.
We build and analyse biological molecular networks.
