Welcome remarks

I am pleased to welcome all participants to the IBS-KSMCB conference on genomic integrity & cell cycle.

Maintenance of genomic integrity and proper cell cycle are one of most important cellular task for all living cells to survive. Since the discovery of cell and genetic material, DNA, due to its importance linking them to various diseases as well as basic science, these topics have been extensively studied in biology and medicine fields. In the IBS-KSMCB conference on genomic integrity & cell cycle will cover most recent findings in this topic by a coming from many different parts in the world.

A glance through the list of presentations planned for the conference shows the amazing complexity of genomic integrity and cell cycle.

They range from detail molecular mechanisms of DNA repair, DNA replication, DNA recombination, mitotic mechanism, and cell death with various approaches including molecular and cellular biology, biochemistry, animal models and biophysics.

Conference such as this will provide a valuable opportunity for basic and translational research scientists to share experiences. I am grateful to outstanding speakers who come and share their most recent findings.

I am sure that all of participants will have fruitful and rewarding exchanges during the conference. I wish all of you have great success with the conference.
