We would like to express our deepest sympathies to those who lost their family and friends in the Tohoku-Kanto Earthquake on March 11, 2011.

The SBJ server (www.sbj.or.jp) is located in Chiba in Kanto area and was down from March 14 to 17 due to the rolling blackout after the earthquake. The server is not affected by blackout now, but you might not be able to access our web site when rolling blackout is applied again. We apologize for the inconvenience.

SBJ Business Office is in Osaka and operates as usual. Submission and Access to the Journal of Bioscience and Bioengineering is available:

The March issue of the Journal of Bioscience and Bioengineering (Vol. 111, No. 3) and the Seibutsu-kogaku Kaishi (Vol. 89, No. 3) was dispatched on schedule. It might take longer time to be delivered to the northern part of Japan. The journals will be kept if they cannot be sent to the areas affected by the earthquake. If you need to change your mailing address, please contact us at .

Thank you for your cooperation.
