Lectures, seminars and practical training sessions are conducted on the newest research and technology developments of resource management and animal production. Students gain an understanding of cutting edge research and technology on resources management and animal production from the point of view of symbiosis and coexistence of human beings with living things and nature, and polish their originality.
Lectures are given to establish animal production systems which have symbiotic relationships with nature on the three topics as follows: 1) Research on the utilization of rice and other resources as feed, 2) Research on animal behavior from the point of view of animal welfare and feed management based on research findings, 3) The latest information on the promotion of environmentally friendly agriculture such as rice cultivation methods using ducks, measures against officially designated epidemic diseases, iPS cell utilization and technologies supporting reproduction.
The aim of these lectures is to learn about the advanced research and techniques of plant genetic technology and plant cell technology and to develop each research work, by listening to the lectures of external researchers and technicians.
It is well-known that microorganisms play important roles in food production and industrial production. Microorganisms play a key role not only in the traditional fermentation industry but also in the medicinal industry and in environmental issues, in conjunction with the development of genetic engineering techniques. In this advanced course, the role of applied microbiology advancements achieved to date and the modern process of industrial production using microorganisms are explained from the point of view of molecular biology. Furthermore, future prospects in this area are outlined.
The aim of this seminar is to learn about advanced research and to evaluate each research project with presentations to explain the relevant English papers. In addition, students learn the procedures for basic scientific research and develop presentation skills and English skills. An additional aim is to learn about scientific discussions through the presentation of research plans and research progress reports.
