A conference on "Y Chromosome and Male Germ Cell Biology in Health and
Diseases in the Post Genomic Era" organized by the Laboratory of Clinical
Genomics, National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, NIH
will be held at the Asilomar Conference Center, Pacific Grove, California
September 21-23, 2005. The conference consists of four focused sessions,
namely, Y chromosome and male reproduction, germ cell gene expression and
regulation, spermatogonial stem cell biology, and male germ cell
development in health and diseases, with presentations by experts in the
fields. There will also be a poster session for other participants.
