Philosophy of the Department of Basic Biology

We study the basic principles common to all living organisms, and the mechanisms that enable diversity and allow life to adapt to changing environments. We educate students to discover essential questions in the field of biology, and solve them.
 

Prospective Students

We seek individuals with interests in biological phenomena and the investigation of the mechanisms behind them.
 

Student Selection Process

Based on application forms and interviews with our faculty members, we learn about the student’s motivation and potential for studying. In addition, for prospective five-year students, we examine the student’s ability to think logically, as well as their skill in English language through short essays and a written examination.
