Webinar 50: Japanese competence centers in bioinformatics and computational biology

22-09-15 to 22-09-15 | 10:30 h - 11:30h GMT +1

Who are the key players in Japanese bioinformatics and computational biology, and what might be entry points for my product to explore market opportunities? 

As Japan is strong both in computer hardware and in the biosciences, it is no surprise that bioinformatics have played an ever-increasing role in Japanese life science research and its industrial applications, e. g., in the pharmaceutical industry. The advent of “big data” programs such as the MegaBank project directed towards individualized medicine have further stimulated this trend. As similar tendencies apply to Europe as well, it is useful to understand the Japanese bioinformatics landscape in order to evaluate if and where own software products may fit into the Japanese market.

This webinar is targeted at EU companies seeking to sell bioinformatics-related tools or software to the Japanese market.
