About World Fusion
World Fusion is the leading Bio- and Chem- informatics company in Japan. Since 1996, World Fusion has been developing various bioinformatics tools for Japanese researchers. We have been involved in many projects, such as "human genome projects", "genome wide association studies", and "proteome projects" in Japan, and those experiences have kept us at the top of the Japanese bioinformatics scene. More recently we have been focusing on therapetic target discovery, gene expression analysis, variant analysis, and developing metagenomic and metatranscriptomic data analysis tools.
Over 50 pharmaceutical companies, and several hundreds academic and government researchers use our products and services. We support basic research to large projects such as GWAS, and also support many types of drug discovery projects and genomic research.
We seek and develop new technologies to meet the needs of emerging trends:
Advanced analysis techniques of bioinformatics and chemoinformatics
Knowledge of handling and curating datasets, and how the information can be effectively used for data analysis, such as microarray or next generation sequencing
Creating the keyword dictionaries including chemical structures and linking it to a wealth of related knowledge
Discovering techniques for target genes using disease model animals
Engineering techniques for a high-caliber drug discovery knowledge base
