The LSA (Life Science Accelerator) is a system for rapidly decoding the "program of life" or the networks of molecular interactions in cells. Focusing on the transcriptional regulation network including non-coding RNA or retrotransposons, we will develop novel technologies to fully understand genome function. LSA will promote research in this unexplored field and highlight the center's originality.
