The International Federation of Human Genetics Societies (IFHGS) conducts an International Congress of Human Genetics (ICHG) every 5 years, since its inception in 1956. For the first time in 60 years, the International Congress will be hosted in Asia – in the mystical city of Kyoto.
From April 3rd to 7th, the 13th International Congress of Human Genetics will be held at the International Conference Center in Kyoto, Japan. We look forward to participating in discussions about the latest advancements in genomics amidst the stunning beauty of the blooming cherry blossoms and the majestic architecture of the innumerable shrines in this ancient city.
So what do we have planned for you in Kyoto?
