4th Symposium “Forefront of Bioinformatics ~From Omics Integration Analysis to Systems Biology~” was held

On October 1, 2012, the 4th public symposium for the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology’s Project for Innovation System Development: Creation of Innovation Centers for Advanced Interdisciplinary Research Areas Program “Creation of Medical Research Centers for Posttranslational Modification Proteomics” was held on the 6th floor of the Cultural Information Center, in the Cultural Information Hall.
This symposium was held with the objective of further promoting industry-academia collaboration, targeted towards people who are affiliated mainly with research agencies such as of pharmaceutical companies and universities.
This symposium, which was the 4th one of its kind, was based on the theme of the bioinformatics sector, of which its strengthening is being promoted at centers. In addition to introduction of approaches that are being implemented at centers, presentations were made on bioinformatics technology in shrimp genome marker measurement and drug discovery target analysis, as well as on trends abroad, etc. Based on topics such as the emergence of researchers involved in fusing wet research and dry research, this symposium enabled for participants to realize the future possibilities of the bioinformatics sector.
