Genome-related technologies are being developed very rapidly and are essential for the field of life sciences. The mission of the project "Platform for Advanced Genome Science" (PAGS) is to advance technologies in genomics and bioinformatics and to provide them for a wide range of research projects that are supported by the Grants-in-Aid for Scientific Research (KAKENHI). This provision of the state-of-the-art technologies, hereafter called the "PAGS support", is expected to lead to the creation of cutting-edge research and the advancement of life sciences. Appropriate applications based on KAKENHI projects will be selected for the PAGS support. Many applications are welcome.
