FASEB Science Research Conference: Genetic Recombination and Genome Rearrangements

Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology

Bethesda, MD - The 2015 FASEB Science Research Conference on Genetic Recombination and Genome Rearrangements is an important scientific conference that presents progress in research on diverse aspects of genetic recombination, a critical process that maintains integrity of the genome and that ensures the faithful transmission of the genome between generations. The underlying theme of the 2015 conference will be to foster exchange of information and technology between researchers working on the biochemical, molecular, genetic and cell biological aspects of recombination. This conference provides a unique venue for discussion of recent advances in the study of recombination mechanisms and of their impact on genome integrity. It will foster collaboration between researchers worldwide who are interested in the basic, clinical, and technological relevance of recombination.

FASEB has announced a total of 34 Science Research Conferences (SRC) in 2015. Registration opens January 20, 2015. For more information about an SRC, view preliminary programs, or find a listing of all our 2015 SRCs, please visit http://www.faseb.org/SRC.

Since 1982, FASEB SRC has offered a continuing series of inter-disciplinary exchanges that are recognized as a valuable complement to the highly successful society meetings. Divided into small groups, scientists from around the world meet intimately and without distractions to explore new approaches to those research areas undergoing rapid scientific changes. In efforts to expand the SRC series, potential organizers are encouraged to contact SRC staff at SRC@faseb.org. Proposal guidelines can be found at http://www.faseb.org/SRC.

FASEB is composed of 27 societies with more than 120,000 members, making it the largest coalition of biomedical research associations in the United States. Our mission is to advance health and welfare by promoting progress and education in biological and biomedical sciences through service to our member societies and collaborative advocacy.
