Grant-in-Aid for Transformative Research Area A “Digitalization-driven Transformative Organic Synthesis (Digi-TOS)”
With information science as the driving force and experimental science as the means to scrutinize new principles, we aim to further advance the field of synthetic organic chemistry.
The area representative will promote and operate this research area with the following vision, and advance research through the three-team system below to firmly establish this research area in our country and build an unrivaled position within the five-year research period, allowing no other to follow suit.
This research project involves interdisciplinary collaboration between the A01/02 experimental science teams and the A03 information science team, and the key to their collaboration is a win-win relationship. The A03 team supports the acceleration of A01/02\'s research, while A01/02 team verifies and demonstrates the design and proposals of the A03 team through experimentation, resulting in significant mutual benefits. With the participation of over 50 research groups from both planned and open-call teams, this research structure is necessary to cover the diversity of organic chemistry and the amount of data required for machine learning. The aim of this structure is to \"super-accelerate the creation of innovative reactions and innovative molecules.\"
