Department of Omics Network
The Department of Omics Network, established in August 2014, is derived from Masaru Katoh’s laboratory, which is also known as the Katoh’s Unit (from 2009 to 2014) and the Genetics and Cell Biology Section (from 1998 to 2009). The Department has been researching the WNT, FGF, Notch and Hedgehog signaling cascades and the Forkhead-box (FOX) family of transcription factors. The goal of the Department is the establishment of Knowledgebase focused on the regulatory signaling network for the development of novel diagnostics and therapeutics.
Manuscript citation count in the Web of Science Database (Thomson Reuters) is a surrogate marker of contribution to the global scientific community. Katoh’s manuscripts were cited 641 times by others in 2014.
