36th International Mammalian Genome Conference (IMGC2023)

RIKEN Symposium

RIKEN Symposium “Developmental Epigenetics and Advanced Phenotyping Technology”

Genetics and epigenetics are essential mechanisms of life phenomena, including the processes of ontogeny development and cell differentiation. In this RIKEN Symposium, ten speakers will focus on latest topics on epigenetic analysis using mammals and advanced phenotyping technologies for epigenetics research. On the first day, we will cover topics such as X-chromosome inactivation and ontogeny development processes, and on the second day, topics related to genome editing, genome and transcriptome analysis, and phenotypic imaging analysis.

This Symposium will be co-sponsored by RIKEN and IMGS, held on the evening of March 29th (Wed) and 30th (Thu) as parts of the 36th IMGC in Tsukuba (see tentative program of 36th IMGC).

Symposium will be open to public and held as a hybrid style of face-to-face and virtual presentations. We hope all participants will enjoy scientific presentations and communication.

(Participants of the 36th IMGC are also registered for this symposium and do not need to register here.)
