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.
