The Cell Innovation Program aims to understand the cellular/life program by utilizing the technologies of next-generation sequencing and cellular imaging etc. by the use of the results and platform from the "Genome Network Project (GNP)" finished in FY2008. For this purpose, the Program works to establish "Sequencing Center" operating with high-speed sequencers and "Data Analysis Center" operating with the vast amount of diverse data, and promotes "Leading Research Projects" to investigate cellular functions making good use of these platforms and to develop innovative technologies.
The National Institute of Genetics (NIG) as Data Analysis Center the promotion of the research activities that utilized a large quantity of genome information through development and maintenance of the data analysis platform for NGS.
