About iSYM

 
Integrated Symbiology (iSYM) is an interdisciplinary research program at RIKEN, studying organism-organism interactions. High biological diversity, which is built on numerous organism-organism interactions, ensures natural sustainability for all life forms, including us. 
We aim to understand how organisms interact with each other in the molecular level, revealing novel communication tools and controlling strategies developed by various life forms.

Featured News Report

 
PacBio Training was held at Yokohama RIKEN.


PacBio Sequel training was held for five days (4/11-4/17). The schedule of training included from sample preparation untill sequencing. During the training, there was also a bioinformatics seminar by PacBio Asia. I hope the training was fruitful for everyone. Attendees were from a variety of research fields in symbiology so it was also a great opportunity to get to know each other.
