Understanding of resources which grow and proliferate as well as smart use of them

The ideal of the department is that “all living things are precious resources for us human to coexist and utilize for long periods.” To make use of these resources without disturbing environment, you have to understand their characteristics from a broad point of view of molecules, cells, physiological individuals or groups and ecosystems.

Since activities of humans are making a serious impact on natural environment right now, the department would like to educate young students who have multilevel thoughts and skills. The department is perfect for those who are wishing to study biology but cannot think of anything specific, thinking of building a bridge between basic biology and its applied science, along with those who are interested in interactions of environment and life.
