The structures of molecules, small and large, through DNA to active polymers, are inherently related to their functions or biological responses in higher organisms. Our aims of research and education are to elucidate these relationships generally and systematically by the use of genomics, biochemistry and organic chemistry. It is important to understand fundamental molecule-based sciences in any of our research fields.
