Why Singapore?

Many leading universities worldwide recognize Singapore as a global leader in the areas of education and science, including life sciences. They have established a presence in Singapore through either joint collaborations or via the establishment of an independent campus. Singapore is also recognized by various biotech companies as a global leader in genomics, and many have responded by establishing regional headquarters, R&D facilities, and manufacturing plants in Singapore.  
PAG Asia Meeting and Expo

We envision the first PAG Asia to be a 2 1/2 day meeting, consisting of plenary and small break-out sessions (workshops).  It is our objective to include world recognized authorities in genomics as plenary speakers. Invited to speak will be Nobel laureates who have previously lectured at the PAG in the U.S. Additionally, we expect a poster section with about 100 posters, and an expo area with approximately 30-50 exhibitors.

Scientific Workshop Subjects will Include:

    * Rice
    * Cassava
    * Ornamentals
    * Biofuels
    * Fish
    * Shrimp
    * Drosophila (insects)
    * The Use of Animals and Plants in Human Medicine
    * Animal Genomics
    * Methodology  & Other Non-Specific/General Areas
    * Additional Workshops On Subject Such As:
      Next Generation Sequencing, Molecular Markers, QTL Cloning, Databases/Computer Applications (Demos), Comparative Genomics, Functional Genomics, Gene Expression.

New Tech Vastly Improves CRISPR/Cas9 Accuracy
A new CRISPR/Cas9 technology developed by scientists at UMass Medical School is precise enough to surgically edit DNA at nearly any genomic location, while avoiding potentially harmful off-target changes typically seen in standard CRISPR gene editing techniques.
New Class of RNA Tumor Suppressors Identified
Two short, “housekeeping” RNA molecules block cancer growth by binding to an important cancer-associated protein called KRAS. More than a quarter of all human cancers are missing these RNAs.
