100 Best universities for Biochemistry in Japan

Below is the list of best universities in Japan ranked based on their research performance in Biochemistry. A graph of 5.58M citations received by 137K academic papers made by 201 universities in Japan was used to calculate publications' ratings, which then were adjusted for release dates and added to final scores.

We don't distinguish undergraduate and graduate programs nor do we adjust for current majors offered. You can find information about granted degrees on a university page but always double-check with an official site as it's constantly changing data.
