Genome Integrity Discussion Group (2)

Genome Integrity Discussion Group

Monday, March 19, 2007

The New York Academy of Sciences

Presented By

 

The greater New York metropolitan area has become a leading center for research on chromosome biology and function, as well as for research at the interface between chromosome integrity and cell cycle regulation.

The Genome Integrity meetings are a part of the Frontiers of Science Program at the New York Academy of Sciences, under which the Academy is starting a series of discussion groups in many frontier areas of science. Meeting four to five times each year, this group provides an opportunity to exchange ideas and form research collaborations among investigators active in the field.
