is adequately equipped for research ranging from cytogenetics to molecular
biology. Among the more sophisticated pieces are an automated cytogenetic
system, a digitized microscopic fluorescence image processor, a robot
processor, two Biometra Rotaphor pulsed-field gel electrophoresis units,
Beckman ultracentrifuges, etc.. The Instrument Center on the next floor
provides and manages many more shared pieces of equipment. Many of our
facilty members are in charge of the core facilities of the University
Genome Research Center (YMGC).
Institute also enjoys a comprehensive Ethernet computer network (made
up of a server and many personal computers, as well as Macintoshes)
for communications as well as for sharing hardware and databases. This
local network is connected to Internet with accesses to Tanet2 and Internet2.
grants and publications
in the Institute has been funded by grants from National Science
Council, National Health Research Institute, Department
of Health, National Agriculture Council, Development Center
for Biotechnology, and private institutions.
faculty member publish regularly scientific findings in international
renowned journals (see each member's page for details).
Program for Promoting Academic Excellence Universities
our members are taking charge of this project. They include the field
about genomics, bioinformatics, biopharmacology, genetics...etc. For
more information about what are we doing, check this website.
projects in the labs for undergraduate students are common. Many of
these are sponsored by National Science Council, and require competitive
applications. The Institute also attract medical doctors (particularly
from Taipei Veteran
General Hospital) to collaborate in medical genetic studies. Visiting
scientists from aboard also come for short-term stays for specific projects.
who are interested in short-term research project or collaboration,
please contact each individual member.
the semesters, a weekly seminar is held for M.S. students (on Wednesday
at 1:30) and for Ph.D. students (on Thursday at 1:30). Seminars given
by visitors are many and have no fixed time.
