This collaborative research aims to develop standard visualization and manipulation technology applicable to biological samples for further innovation of bio-nanotechnology.

The Japanese research team will analyze the detailed structures of human and plant chromosomes. The Thai team will also analyze the chromosomes, but using the macro- and micro-chromosomes specific to birds and reptiles. The Vietnamese team will analyze the early process of the infection of the microbes at nano-level in collaboration with the Thai team.

Through collaborative and complementary research among the three countries, this research is expected to achieve synergy effects on the usage of the biological materials and techniques and will develop the standardized nanotechnologies useful for elucidating biological issues using specific biological samples important for each country.
