Welcome to ISNAC 2017 in Tokyo!

On behalf of the organizing committee and executive committee of the 44th International Symposium on Nucleic Acids Chemistry (ISNAC 2017), I cordially invite you to attend ISNAC 2017, which will be held during November 14 (Tue) – 16 (Thu), 2017 at Tokyo University of Science in Tokyo, Japan. We are also happy to announce you that the Japan Society of Nucleic Acids Chemistry (JSNAC) is planning to be established this year, and ISNAC 2017 will be combined with the first annual meeting of JSNAC.

ISNAC started in 1973 as an annual domestic meeting of nucleic acid chemists in Japan, and became an international symposium in 2005 having invited nucleic acid chemists from all over the world. Nowadays, ISNAC is one of the biggest and most active symposiums of bio-related chemistry in the world. ISNAC covers divers aspects of genetic technology, molecular biology, nanobiotechnology, and therapeutic and diagnostic applications of these fields as well as nucleic acid chemistry. It is a great honor for us to host ISNAC 2017 in Tokyo. I’m sure we can arrange an exciting scientific program with excellent speakers invited from around the world.

Again, we extend cordial welcome to all of the students and researchers engaged in the research fields mentioned above in academia and industry. We are very much looking forward to seeing all of you in Tokyo.
