Tenth CDB Symposium on Quantitative Developmental Biology
15 June 2012 (Volume 7 Issue 5)
Participants came from around the world to attend the CDB Symposium 2012
On 26–28 March 2012, the RIKEN Center for Developmental Biology (CDB) held its tenth annual symposium, this year on the topic of Quantitative Developmental Biology. The symposium was attended by around 160 participants from 14 countries, providing an opportunity to review and experience experimental, computational, and theoretical approaches to the study of developmental principles. The 31 talks of the symposium were augmented by the presentation of over 70 posters, giving researchers in quantitative developmental biology the chance to discuss their work with peers from around the world.
This year’s event was co-organized by Shigeo Hayashi and Tatsuo Shibata from the CDB, as well as Suzanne Eaton of the Max Planck Institute of Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics in Germany, Shigeru Kondo of Osaka University, and Shuichi Onami of the RIKEN Quantitative Biology Center, with support of 11 participating organizations.
