Presentation at 42th Annual meeting of the Behavior Genetic Association


Date: 2012/6/21 - 2012/6/30

 I gave a oral presentation at 42th Annual meeting of the Behavior Genetic Association entitled " The association between copy number variants in chicken chromosome 1 and tonic immobility " and argued with participants on this topic. I also participated in a lot of symposiums and working groups in order to obtain the information on the latest topics on behavior genetics. I had a discussion with scientists who had great interest in behavior genetics targeting for non-human vertebrates. I could obtain the latest knowledge on twin study through the presentation by leading scientist in this field of research. After annual meeting, I visited on the Edinburgh zoo and their facilities and had a chance to see highly equipped genetic laboratory. I was deeply impressed by the advanced equipment in the laboratory as well as their knowledge and technique on molecular genetics.
