     The Division of Biological Science promotes education and research intended for various vital phenomena of the diversified living beings interacting on earth. It does so through macro research (ecology, ethology, systematic biology, and anthropology, etc) conducted in an ongoing tradition of Kyoto University which prizes fieldwork, and integrates it with state-of-the-art micro research (cytology, gene study, embryology, neuroscience, and molecular biology, etc).
     The Division of Biological Science consists of the three departments of zoology, botany, and biophysics. In the Department of Zoology, we promote research for the principle understanding of living beings and of the diversity of the world in which living creatures reside. The Department of Botany and the Department of Biophysics conduct advanced research for the understanding of biodiversity and the definition of life.

16. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) - Department of Biology
     Training and research in the department range from general biology to more specialized fields of study and investigation. Quantitative aspects of biology are emphasized and molecular biology, biochemistry, genetics, and cell biology are an essential part of the academic program. Courses are designed to give students a solid background in the physical sciences and an integrated scientific perspective. Students graduate from the MIT Department of Biology with the intellectual resources they need to assume leading roles in many areas, including research, teaching, and industry.
     MIT biologists are deeply engaged in both fundamental research and its applications. The department promotes a highly collaborative environment that allows for a free exchange of ideas across research areas and academic disciplines. The result is a rigorous, creative, dynamic culture in which scientists and students tackle the important problems and questions in biology and related fields. Our location at the heart of one of the world's most important biotech/pharma hubs creates exciting opportunities for research, employment, and the commercialization of new discoveries.

18. National University of Singapore - Faculty of Science - Department of Biological Sciences
     In 2009, we celebrate the 60th Anniversary of our founding as two departments, Botany and Zoology. During this period we merged to become one of the best Life Sciences Departments in the Asia Pacific Region with core strengths in Ecology/Biodiversity, Cell/Molecular/Developmental Biology and Biophysical Sciences. As we look forward, we aim to create a new department whose focus is sharply centered on emerging and strategic problems in biological sciences and using powerful quantitative and computational biology approaches for studying and modeling those problems.
     The mission of the Department of Biological Sciences is education, research, and outreach. Faculty go to the local schools to talk about their passion for biological research, the potential benefits for the environment and human health, and the careers that await students with a Life Sciences education. Befittingly, DBS anchors the teaching of the undergraduate Life Sciences Curriculum and offers NUS undergrads the opportunity to conduct state-of-art research through UROPs and honor thesis projects. Our graduate program attracts the best students from 17 countries and 3 continents. Backed by world-class funding in biological research from NUS and the Singapore Government, DBS offers new graduate students their pick of projects in areas as diverse as tropical and urban ecology and biodiversity, microbial ecology, molecular cell biology and developmental biology of plants and fish, structural biology, systems biology, computational biology and bioinformatics, and new programs in mechanobiology and bioimaging sciences. Our goal is for DBS to be an international hub for biological sciences research.
     DBS is an international department with an international faculty and strong international ties in research and teaching with MIT through the Singapore-MIT Alliance (SMA) and the MIT SMART research groups, with labs at Tsinghua and Xiamen University through the Trilateral Research Collaboration, and with top Indian research institutes and universities such as the Indian Institute of Science, Anna University, and the University of Madras. The Year of the Tiger has great promise to bring new educational and research initiatives to DBS. We welcome you to enter this portal and explore the diverse offerings in the Department of Biological Sciences.

20. Tokyo Metropolitan University - Division of Biological Sciences
     In the Division of Biological Sciences, our aim is to study and research in a wide range of fields in basic biology and the life sciences. These fields are moving forward extremely rapidly, and the results of basic research quickly make their way into practical applications such as the medical sciences, agriculture, and environmental sciences. This means that there is a huge demand for personnel with excellent research abilities. The application of this research ability requires a wide range of knowledge, good techniques, plus the ability to think in new ways. To this end, the program has been designed to cover a wide range of life forms from molecules/cells up to individuals, through to ecosystems and environments, working with a variety of animals, plants, and microbes. To encourage independent thinking, we promote voluntary research and activities, and emphasize communication skills, including English and bioinformatics.
