Our mission is to realize genomic medicine based on the integrated data analysis of whole genomes of human and commensal microbiota by supercomputing. Development of computational data analysis methods including artificial intelligence for genomic, health, and medical big data is one of our main focuses. We promote integrative analysis of the human whole genome, RNA and other omics data, commensal microbiota including bacteriome and virome, and health and medical-related big data. Furthermore, health medical intelligence aims at using the analysis results of such big data to create personalized health-medical action plans for individuals.
