Pea Aphid Genome Annotation Workshop

I’m now at Princeton, attending Pea Aphid Genome Annotation Workshop I.

Actually I am neither a genomicist nor a bioinformatist. However, I’ve been engaged in aphid studies for many years using some molecular techniques, so that I am a bit interested in a genomics.

I am not good at dealing large amount of information like genomic informations, but I think these genomics studies largely help us to understand the complicated biology of many organisms.

To use genome information in a smart manner, the annotation of genes seems to be important.

We just have a month…

Now we’ve entered July…. We just have a month left before the IUSSI congress… I mean… International Union of the Study of Social Insects, which will be held in Washington D.C. I will attend the congress with 6 members of my lab.

I will organize two symposia, will present a talk. Two pos docs will present their talks and 4 graduate students will present their posters. Thus, all of us will rush to prepare our presentations.

After the congress, I will visit Princeton Univ and Washington State Univ to meet some of my colleagues. We will have to discuss on our studies, so I think I have to summarize our recent data.

I think I have to change my brain into English version… I hope it is not too late….
