Bioresource Science Division


The Bioresource Science Division has the educational goals to develop the theories and technologies for material cycle realization by using bioresources to establish a food production engineering system for creating sustainable societies. This division advances the unraveling research of animal and plant resources as the foundations of food production and their production environment, from biological, physiological, and cytohistological viewpoints. In the rich natural environment of Shinshu, we perform research and education from both sides of fieldwork and laboratory work. Through bioresource sustainable use and community-based research and education activities, we will contribute to the construction of a rich society, by advancing, in cooperation with regional communities, the fostering of human resources who can act in next-generation environment-friendly agriculture and agricultural product production.
