Report on an oversea trip supported by COE program
ASM conference on DNA repair and mutagenesis; From molecular structure
to biological consequences
Poster presentation at ASM conference on DNA repair and mutagenesis.
11/13 Narita international airport (Japan)-JFK (U.S.A)-Bermuda international
11/14-19 ASM conference on DNA repair and mutagenesis; From molecular
structure to biological consequences
11/20-21 Bermuda international airport (U.K.)-JFK (U.S.A)-Narita international
Results and Perspectives
At the international conference, I made a poster presentation on a newly
identified factor that participated in nucleotide excision repair.
In this poster session, I discussed some issues with foreign researchers
and got some useful advices on our research. Among these advices, especially
effective advices on frontier techniques which would be utilized to
our research-atomic force microscope or photo bleaching assay using
fluorescence microscope-were suggested. This conference focused on
various researches into DNA repair ? base excision repair, nucleotide
excision repair, for example. In addition, this conference also had
many sessions concerned with biological consequences of molecular defects
in DNA repair pathways. Therefore, although I now research on a protein
complex that participates in early step of nucleotide excision repair,
this conference enable me to understand systematically the following
effect of molecular defects of various field of DNA repair. Furthermore,
in poster session many unpublished data were presented. These posters
presented some topics which would be great advantage to put forward
our research. On the other hand, I got acquainted with some researchers
and seized opportunity to make joint research. So that, I will continue
our research that will take into account into some information obtained
through this conference.
Finally, I thank COE program for support of this trip.
