The graduate school of agricultural and life sciences (GSALS) consists of 12 departments and 8 affiliated institutions and covers a wide field of research that constitute the fundamentals of agricultural life sciences in the 21st century. The graduate school has signed academic exchange agreements with universities worldwide.
Agricultural and Environmental Biology
Biological research concerning agricultural production, and creation, management and conservation of environment.
Applied Biological Chemistry
Analysis of biological phenomena which are important for the basic and applied biological fields. Production of useful materials for human life by biological and chemical technique.
Our department will contribute to addressing numerous environment issues, such as global warming, acid rain, desertification and the degradation of tropical rainforests.
Our department offers a variety of education and research which focus on aquatic life science, production, environment and on the appropriate utilization of aquatic resources.
