Call for posters as well as participants for the 61st NIBB Conference “Cellular Community in Mammalian Embryogenesis”

The National Institute for Basic Biology is holding the 61st NIBB Conference “Cellular Community in Mammalian Embryogenesis” on July 10h - 12th, 2013.The scope of this conference is to provide a venue for cutting-edge researchers in this field, who are investigating the early development of mammalian embryos based on a wide variety of motivations, to get together and discuss issues relating early mammalian development. Recent progress in molecular genetics, embryo manipulation and live imaging techniques provided wide variety of information. We especially would like to focus on the cellular basis of early mammalian embryogenesis. Some participants may be focusing on the biological fundamentals, while others may also have motivations to the technological and applicative potential of mammalian embryos and stem cells.
