1st DNAFORM Seminar – “Novel cellular functions revealed by Cap Analysis of Gene Expression (CAGE)”

20 Feb 2023

On 15 March 2023, we will be hosting a free webinar about the latest research on the functionally annotation of human genome, especially using cap analysis of gene expression (CAGE), a gene expression analysis method that can capture promoters and enhancers at high resolution.

15. March 14:00-16:45 (JST, UTC+9)

The speakers and titles of the talks were as follows.
We look forward to your participation.
