International Meeting on Aquatic Model Organisms for Human Disease and Toxicology Research

March 18-19, 2016, Okazaki Japan,
Okazaki Conference Center

Aquatic Model Organisms have been playing an important roles for basic biology such as developmental biology, genetics, endocrinology etc. Recent progress of new technology such as the next generation sequencing and genome editing technology enable us to produce new human disease model based on disease mechanism using aquatic model organisms. Upon these situations, Four NBRP resources (medaka, zebrafish, Xenopus and ciona intestinalis) jointly organize this international meeting to promote the researches oriented to human health in Japan.
