This is the user page of Koichi Abe. I obtained my bachelor's degree at Department of Applied Biological Science, Tokyo University of Science. Then, I moved to Department of Biotechnology, Graduate School of Agricultural and Life Sciences, The University of Tokyo, where I completed my Ph.D. course under the supervision of Dr. Shinya Fushinobu and Dr. Takatoshi Arakawa. Dr. Masahiro Nakajima had supported my Ph.D work since I was a 4th undergraduate student. During my Ph.D. course, I contributed to structural and biochemical analysis of β-1,2-glucan associated proteins, one of which is a bacterial endo-β-1,2-glucanse [1]. I moved to Agricultural Bioinformatics Research Unit, The University of Tokyo as a postdoctral fellow under Dr. Tohru Terada and engaged in structural analysis of various proteins using molecular simulation techniques. I am currently working as an applications scientist for MOLSIS Inc. and especially interested in in silico pharmacology.
