Meeting Summary


We are now happy to the 65th Fujihara Seminar, International Symposium on Synthetic Biology of Unnatural Base Pairs and Amino Acids, held from October 1st – 4th, 2013, at the Grand Hotel New Oji, Tomakomai, Hokkaido, Japan.

The incorporation of unnatural base pairs and amino acids into genetic information systems is one of the major themes in ‘synthetic biology’, and will cast new light toward fundamentally understanding life processes and developing various applications. A genetic information system that incorporates unnatural base pairs and amino acids within a living organism has not yet been achieved. However, we expect it to be realized by the elucidation of the structures of molecules, including huge supramolecular complexes consisting of numerous large components or particles. It will be facilitated by advances in molecular engineering design, based on the principles of biological systems, along with technological developments of unnatural base pairs and amino acids.

This symposium is intended to be small, to allow close contacts among research specialists and young investigators, and aims to provide a forum focused specifically on ‘synthetic biology’, as an integrated field of research (e.g. structural biology, computational science, etc.). It is worth noting that this is one of the largest international symposia focused on this theme that have ever been organized. This meeting will be held under the auspices of the 65th Fujihara Seminar, sponsored by the Fujihara Foundation of Science. The ultimate goal of this meeting is to provide an opportunity for attendees to communicate, link to solve challenges, and promote an integrated understanding of ‘synthetic biology’.

Sincerely,

Shigeyuki Yokoyama
