Scintillating Café "What do the four letters A, T, G, and C tell us? -- next-generation genetic information"

2013-11-4 (Mon) 2:00 p.m. - 3:30 p.m.

All information about life, from microorganisms to plants and humans, is written with just four letters A, T, G, and C. Why are just four letters enough? What is written with the four letters? Assistant Professor Nakamura will answer these questions and also talk about how genetic information is decoded and what we learn from it.
Over the last couple of years, gene decoding technology has made great progress, making it possible for any of us to obtain all of our genetic information for ¥100,000. Do you want to obtain all your genetic information? How about joining us and thinking about the 4 letters of genetic information while listening to the cutting-edge researcher?

Guest: NAKAMURA Shota, Assistant professor, Research Institute for Microbial Diseases, Osaka University

Venue: Osaka Science Museum

There is no entrance fee for attending this event and advance registration is not required. Admission will be limited to those who come first if persons attending exceeds capacity of the venue.

What is the Osaka University Research Council?

Osaka University consists of more than schools and graduate courses where students study; there also research institutes and centers conducting scintillating research. The Osaka University Research Council promotes mutual cooperation among these research institutes and centers in supporting young researchers with outstanding abilities and actively contributing to research communities in the world.

What is a Scintillating Café?

Scintillating Café is the name for an informal seminar sponsored by Osaka University Research Council and the Support Office for Large-Scale Education and Research Projects. The Scintillating Cafés invite researchers and serve as forums for dialogue between researchers and citizens. The organizers hope that participants can appreciate these chances to learn about next-generation environmental technology and bioscience in these Cafés.
