Department of Molecular Microbiology
Advance into a new dimension of microorganisms
In the Department of Molecular Microbiology, in addition to basic knowledge about microbiology, you can acquire specialized knowledge of molecular microbiology, which will ever continue to develop in the future and the handling technology of advanced equipment necessary for conducting the research. We train human resources who are capable to address unsolved problems in the fields of agriculture, food, environment, medicine, etc., and to solve them with ideas and technics.
In addition to a wide range of knowledge in the field of Life Sciences, students learn to understand beneficial or harmful biological functions in the invisible micro biosphere, and then be required to acquire safe handling of microorganisms and usage of them in consideration of their functions.
