Call for posters as well as participants for the 63rd NIBB Conference "Environment to Bioresponse"

The National Institute for Basic Biology is holding the 63rd NIBB Conference "Environment to Bioresponse" from November 30th to December 2nd, 2015. The symposium will aim to engage in deep-discussions with researchers from the international forefront on the ties between the “environment” and the “organism”. In addition to basic biology research on bioresponse strategies, which are molecular foundations for species evolution and diversity, we will also advance discussions on various issues regarding environmental chemical effects on humans and wildlife and their mechanisms of action. The invited speakers are distinguished academics that are leaders on the cutting edge of research using various animal species. We hope this will be an opportunity to think broadly about the impact of environmental factors and biological responses from a wide range of fields including perspectives from basic biology and bioinformatics. We have also provided opportunities for poster presentations.
