A chemical library is an indispensable tool to promote research on the regulation of cell functions and drug-discovery under the strategy of chemical biology. To ensure the utilization and application of the chemical library, we promote research supports for chemical biology and resource science by providing chemical compounds, their information, and structure-activity relationship analysis. Moreover, we are enriching the chemical library by cooperating with Chemical Biology Research Group and Natural Product Biosynthesis Research Unit.


  1. Chemical library utilization
  2. Research promotion by structure-activity relationship analysis and optimization of chemical structures
