TM Software, Inc. was founded by Takashi Miyajima to service the burgeoning field of Bioinformatics on the web.  Having received his Ph.D. in Engineering from the University of Tokyo, and having worked on research projects at California Institute of Technology as a visiting associate; Miyajima is well aware of the needs and pressures of academic research.  Miyajima saw the need to simplify the usage of one of the premier Bioinformatics database search programs, NCBI BLAST.  As a scientist and researcher, Miyajima understood that scholars need tools they can use—not tools they have to make.  BlastStation meets the needs of scientists, both academic and corporate, as well as students for facilitating web-based Bioinformatics research.
