Genomic Sciences Research Complex (GSC) Tanabata meeting 2011

On August 25 (Thu.), 2011, the second annual Genomic Sciences Research Complex (GSC) Tanabata meeting 2011 was held at RIKEN Yokohama Institute. One hundred young scientists from in and outside of Japan participated in the event.

This year, 27 young scientists were selected to present their research ideas. Among these presenters, six researchers were from abroad, two were from domestic companies, and two were female scientists.
