Dr. Hsiao-Chun Huang received her Ph.D. degree in Systems Biology from Harvard Medical School in After graduation, she worked as a postdoctoral research fellow at the Institute of Biomedical Sciences, Academia Sinica. She joined the Institute of Molecular and Cellular Biology at National Taiwan University, where she is currently an assistant professor since August She is interested in using multidisciplinary approaches encompassing quantitative single-cell imaging, molecular biology, computational modeling and synthetic approaches to understand how pathway architectures give rise to interesting cellular behaviors, including cell-cell variability.

Dr.Kazuharu Arakawa received his Ph.D. degree in Bioinformatics from Keio University in After graduation, he worked as a research associate at the Institute for Advanced Biosciences at Keio University. He is currently a project assistant professor since His research interest is bioinformatics and system biology. For example, bacterial genome sequence analysis, metabolomics, G-language system, etc. Recently, he focuses on transomic analysis of Hypsibius dujardini, which is "the strongest species all over the world".

Dr. Itoh received his M.D. (1984) and Ph.D. (1990) from Kyushu University, Japan. After his postdoctoral training at UC Berkeley, he joined the Human Genome Center at the University of Tokyo as Assistant Professor in He was promoted to Professor of the Cancer Research Institute at Kanazawa University in He then moved to the Department of Computational Biology (2003) and the Department of Biophysics and Biochemistry (2009) at the University of Tokyo. Takashi Ito Department of Biophysics and Biochemistry, Graduate School of Science, The University of Tokyo 2009 Professor, Graduate School of Science, The University of Tokyo 2003 Professor, Graduate School of Frontier Sciences, The University of Tokyo 1999 Professor, Cancer Research Institute, Kanazawa University 1999 Associate Professor, Institute of Medical Science, The University of Tokyo 1992 Research Associate, Institute of Medical Science, The University of Tokyo 1991 Postdoctoral Research Fellow, The University of California at Berkeley 1990 Doctor of Medical Science from Kyushu University 1987 Research Associate, Institute of Tropical Medicine, Nagasaki University 1984 M.D. Graduated, Faculty of Medicine, Kyushu University Dr. Itoh performed a first comprehensive two-hybrid analysis of the yeast proteome as a pioneer of interactome analysis. He also performed a large-scale full-length cDNA analysis to reveal unexpected complexity of the yeast transcriptome. He has been also interested in epigenomics to develop unique methods for imprinted gene hunting, allelic methylation analysis, one-hybrid screening for methylated DNA-binding proteins, and highly sensitive whole-genome bisulfite sequencing. Professor Itoh has published many important Papers on epigenetics and other biological phenomenon. He is a wet-lab researcher with an outstanding appreciation of the role computation can play in biology, and experience advising graduate students in a multi-disciplinary department. In short, a perfect speaker to foster new collaborations between experimental and computational scientists.
