Research and Education in the Division of Marine Life Science
The division is divided into six core research laboratories or educational chairs (Aquaculture Biology, Aquaculture Genetics and Genomics, Marine Biotechnology and Microbiology, Marine Bioresources Chemistry, Marine Food Science and Technology, Marine Chemical Resource Development) and one fixed term laboratory or chair (Marine Biosafety Science and Technology, 2010-2014 fiscal year). Studies of these laboratories cover a wide research area of marine life science including comparative physiology, reproductive biology, endocrinology, developmental biology, genetics and genomics, molecular biology, microbiology, biochemistry, analytical chemistry and biochemical-process technology of aquatic organisms living in oceans and freshwater system. Scientific contributions of the division can be applicable for development and progress of environment-friendly aquaculture, sustainable use of fisheries resources, maximal utilization of marine organisms as food, nutraceutical, and pharmaceutical compounds, and sound sea-food industry. The division is also organized to foster human resources with superior research skills and an advanced knowledge of basic and applied marine life science. Graduate students of M.Sc. and Ph.D programs are supervised from a multidisciplinary perspective at the international standard by academic staffs of above six core and one fixed-term laboratories or chairs.
