Home Introduction


Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of the Organizing Committee, I am pleased to welcome all the participants to the International Conference of the Genetics Society of Korea, 2017 (ICGSK 2017) that will be held in Seoul, Republic of Korea from October 26 to 27, 2017. This conference will give you a platform to broaden your knowledge, exchange ideas and technologies on broad topics including functional genomics, therapeutics through genome editing, neuronal development and behavior, plant-environment interactions, and bioinformatics in forensic genetics. This conference will also serve the opportunities for networking among participants. ICGSK 2017 will be held at the Global Convention Plaza at Seoul National University (SNU), which is Republic of Korea’s first national university.

The scientific program includes three Plenary Lectures and 15 Symposia focusing on the latest research breakthroughs. In addition, a Poster Session will be arranged for young scientists to present their research progress. This year, we are pleased to have Dr. John V. Moran (University of Michigan, USA), Dr. V. Narry Kim (SNU, Korea) and Dr. Jaroslav Doleel (Institute of Experimental Botany, Czech Rep) as plenary lecturers. In addition, more than 45 world-class scientists from domestic and foreign institutions and 15 Korean young scientists will introduce cutting-edge studies in the Symposia.

There will be a ceremony for the 3rd GSK Academic Research Awards, such as the GSK Life Science Award and the GSK Young Scientist Award. In addition, many companies and industries in the field of bioscience and biotechnology will participate at this conference for the exhibition of research materials and equipments.

We are confident that this conference will provide all the participants with the most updated information on the latest scientific advancements and valuable opportunities to exchange the ideas and launch future collaborations.

We eagerly look forward to meeting you at the ICGSK 2017 this October.

Sincerely yours,

Sang-Hak Jeon, Ph.D.
