Big data life science research in Japan often progresses at a slow pace because of the acquisition of data, informatics analysis methods, or the development of a computational environment that takes into account the mechanistic nature of the data. elsewhere researchers in Europe and the United States continue to conduct research and develop new analytical devices. Large-scale genetic analyses for cancer and other diseases are underway, and data accumulation continues to advance, leading to new drug discovery and the development of new therapies.
The Kashiwa-no-ha Omics Gate provides academia and private companies with the latest large-scale measurement and information analysis technologies in cooperation with the Graduate School of Frontier Sciences, the University of Tokyo. Apart from offering basic technologies such as multi-layer omics analysis, they also offer world-leading technologies such as the single-cell analysis, which is becoming more popular in Europe and the United States, and the world leading, state of the art spatial and spatiotemporal omics analysis.
