Tokyo University Of Agriculture


Molecular Biology and Biotechnology

English has become the established language of scientific communication since the end of the Second World War. The aim of this program is to conduct a wide range of interdisciplinary studies on molecular biology and biotechnology in agriculture from a global, long-term perspective. We put forward a new paradigm, which is specifically designed to activate the dialogue between students and scientists, working on frontier molecular biology and biotechnology, and to create a framework under which to assess the impact of agricultural concerns, and to suggest a sustainable path of global and local development.
