This is the user page of Koichi Abe. I am an applications scientist for MOLSIS Inc. (2019-). I obtained my bachelor's and master's degrees at Department of Applied Biological Science, Tokyo University of Science under the supervision of Dr. Hayao Taguchi and Dr. Masahiro Nakajima. 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 in 2018. Dr. Masahiro Nakajima had supported my 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 GH144 bacterial endo-β-1,2-glucanse . 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 (2018-2019). My research interests currently concern in silico pharmacology.
