For this meeting, we are expecting to have participants associated with modern DNA sequencing including informatic data analysts as well as biologists with strong laboratory experimental background. We expect that the wide spectrum of participants will enhance technical and biological exchanges between different levels – design of lab experiments, infrastructural management in data production, informatic analyses, and biological interpretation. Overall, this meeting is focused to bring about insights into tackling future challenges in understanding animal genome regulation and evolution.


This meeting is a part of the RIKEN Symposium series.


We acknowledge support from the following organizations and companies.

Tsutomu Nakauchi Foundation / Illumina, Inc. / Nippon Genetics Co. Ltd. / Roche Diagnostics K.K.
