Background

The 21st century is the era of post-genome technology. In this era, many active and cutting-edge research fields, such as genomic analysis, nanobioscience, bioinformatics, etc, have been emerging. With the rapid development of genomic technologies, the new concepts and new methods have been developed rapidly in post-genomic field, such as, high-throughput, cross-omics to single molecule, single cell technologies, transcriptome to epi-genomics, haplotype assembly to meta-genomics and environmental genomics, precision medicine to system medicine, which create multiple ascending plateaus of both academic researches and clinical practice in life science.   

At the beginning of this century, in order to enhance international academic exchanges in genomic technologies, promote cooperation, and cultivate young scientists, Professor Hideki Kamihara, Fellow of Hitachi Production Co., Ltd., initiated and launched the International Forun for Post-Genome Technologies (IFPT) in China. Prof. Guohua Zhou and Prof. Zuhong Lu have successfully organized and held the ten conferences of the series in Xi'an (2002), Nanjing (2004), Guilin (2005), Hangzhou (2006), Suzhou (2007), Beijing (2009), Chongqing (2011), Kyoto (2012), Shenzhen (2013) and Nanjing (2018).

Due to the pandemic situation, the Eleventh International Academic Forum on Post-Genome Technology (IFPT’11) will be held online in October 2021. We plan to invite about 30 scholars in the international post-genomic fields to give plenary lectures, and invited talks and oral presentations. The conference will award the best papers to young researchers.

IFPT’11 will be a high-level interdisciplinary academic exchange in state-of-art development of various new genomics technologies, which welcome scientists and students in physics, chemistry, biology, engineering, mathematics, and the other disciplines who interests to develop new methods and technologies in post-genome field.
