Soybean plant originated from Manchuria are known to be spread out in world, and the regions from North Korea to Manchuria have the highest diversity of the soybean species worldwide.
Oligosachharides in human milk(HMOs) have various useful biological functions for infant and applications in industry. Among them, sialyllactose(3’/6‘-SL) and fucosyllactose(2‘/3-FL) draw our atttention. To produce... Read More
The minimal cell is the hydrogen atom of cellular biology. Such a cell, because of its simplicity and absence of redundancy would be a platform for investigating just what biological components are required for life, and how those parts work together to make a living cell.
Artemisinin, an endoperoxide-containing sesquiterpene lactone isolated from Artemisia annua L., is extensively used in treating malaria. The artemisinin-based combination therapy (ACT) is recommended by World... Read More

In recent years, it has become widely accepted that in vitro intestinal models enable improved studies of intestinal function in an ethical and well-controlled manner.
Weitz and his group study the physics of soft condensed matter, materials easily deformed by external stresses, electric, magnetic or gravitational fields, and even thermal fluctuations. These materials typically possess structures much larger than...
