Bioinformatics, Legal Informatics
Computers are excellent at processing large amounts of information and data at high speeds. I am involved in the research of bioinformatics, which aims at solving various problems of biology and legal informatics, which aims to be useful in legislative administration by analyzing laws of national and local governments.
In recent years, as for bioinformatics, I have researched techniques to analyze causal relationships of the genes, applications of coding theory to DNA-sequence analysis, and meta-genome analysis techniques.
As of information science, I proposed a method to analyze and organize regulations issued by prefectural governments, and I am creating a list of common regulations and also quick-view lists of regulations issued by some prefectures.
