Takeya Kasukawa, Ph.D.
Laboratory for Large-Scale Biomedical Data Technology, RIKEN Center for Integrative Medical Sciences
Research background is informatics (data engineering) and bioinformatics. The current research is life-science data management and utilization and database development, especially for transcription and transcriptional regulations. In this project, the roles are the management of the whole data platform project, data production of human and mouse CREs, development of interfaces, and operation of the fanta.bio database and INTRARED web site.
Hideya Kawaji, Ph.D.
Research Center for Genome & Medical Sciences, Tokyo Metropolitan Institute of Medical Science
His background is in information and computer science. In the field of bioinformatics and genomics, his focus has been on transcriptional regulation, including data-driven analysis, the development of analysis methods, and databases (such as FANTOM5). In this project, he contributes to the development of a method to identify cis-regulatory elements and the database (fanta.bio).
Hiroshi Masuya, Ph.D.
Integrated Bioresource Information Division, RIKEN BioResource Research Center
Research backgrounds are mouse genetics and bioinformatics. Current specialty is database development for bioresources and data integration using ontology and semantic web technologies. In this project, the roles are collecting genomic variation data mainly from mouse, correlating it with cis-element regions, and designing metadata.
Shinya Oki, Ph.D.
Department of Drug Discovery Medicine, Graduate School of Medicine, Kyoto University
Reseach background is developmental biology. He developed a database (ChIP-Atlas) that integrates public ChIP-seq data entirely. In this project, he administrate ChIP-Atlas continuously and deepens its linkage with the fanta.bio database.
