Dear Colleagues,

 

Medaka and zebrafish have been used as model organisms in research areas such as development, behavior, physiology, toxicology, genetics, genomics and evolution. Many genetic and experimental tools have been developed in these fish models, and their resources and research activities have been supported by the National BioResource Project@(NBRP) in Japan.

The Japanese Medaka and Zebrafish Meeting (JMZM) is the annual meeting for people who are interested in basic and applied science in medaka, zebrafish, and all the other aquatic animals. This year, the 22nd JMZM takes place in Okazaki, Japan, with support by NBRP medaka and NBRP zebrafish. The organizers welcome all participants from around the world who wish to share this opportunity by exchanging research results, experiences and ideas.

In addition to the invited speakers, poster presentations are welcome from general participants, some of which will be selected for talks.

We are looking forward to seeing you in Okazaki!
