Workshop Theme

Genome-wide sequencing studies, such as the Human Genome Project have deciphered the genomic sequences of many species. We are now in a position to understand the interaction between genes, and the conformations of the chromosomes within the nucleus. This will further our understanding of gene functions, diseases, chromosomal interactions, etc. We would like to invite the leading scientists in the fields to exchange their insights on the recent developments and the challenges in this fast-advancing field.
