On behalf of the International Society for Transgenic Technologies (ISTT), and TT2013 organization committee, we are very honored and pleased to invite you to attend the 11th Transgenic Technology (TT) meeting. The ISTT visits Asia for the first time, after previous ISTT-sponsored conferences that were organized in Europe (Barcelona-TT2005, Berlin-TT2010), North America (Toronto-TT2008, Florida-TT2011) and Oceania (Brisbane-TT2007). This will be our 11th meeting, providing us an opportunity to celebrate this unique forum, originally pioneered by Johannes Wilbertz (Karolinska Institute, Stockholm, Sweden) in 1999.
TT2013, will be held in Guangzhou/ Canton, P.R. China, on February 25-27, 2013, immediately after the Chinese New Year festival, at the Baiyun International Convention Center. The TT2013 meeting is organized by Professor Ming Zhao from Southern Medical University, Guangzhou. Following the meeting, a 3-day workshop about hands-on practical technicals will take place in Sun Yat-Sen University, Guangzhou (February 28 - March 2). Professor Wenhao Xu , director of Gene Targeting and Transgenic Facility, University of Virginia, will give the lectures on piezo injection, laser-assisted application, mouse colony management, etc.
We welcome all attendees who are in the field of generating genetically-modified animals or who perform the experiments to determine the corresponding phenotypes of such transgenic animals. The program would be of interest to scientists, group leaders, postdoctoral researchers, facility managers, technicians and PhD students working directly or indirectly with genetically-modified animals. We invite you to participate and contribute to this conference where we will discuss the latest technology developments, the newest applications and strategies in biology, biomedicine and biotechnology using transgenic animals.
