Open Special Issues

Special Issue "Current Status and Future Trends in BioScience and BioTechnology" - 2022-2023

Aim and Scope

Recent social requests for new industry creation in the biotechnology field have been increasing rapidly. The Division of Bioscience and Biotechnology for Future Bioindustries was newly founded in order to meet these social needs by conducting frontier research directed to bioindustrial applications on the basis of microbiology, food science, bioorganic chemistry, genomics, and bioinformatics. This division also provides education and training to the students, allowing them to be expected as scientific research leaders with entrepreneurial skills in new bioindustrial areas.
