3.1  5TH INTERNATIONAL 3R SYMPOSIUM NOVEMBER 13-17, 2005, - AWAJI YUMEBUTAI
INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE CENTER, AWAJI ISLANDS, HYOGO, JAPAN

The mechanism that replicates, maintains, and sometimes alters the DNA which
contains the genetic information of an organism is the most fundamental and
important mechanism for life. Three processes (DNA Replication, DNA Repair, and
Recombination: 3R) that are involved in this mechanism are closely related each
other. The scope of this Symposium is to create a forum for free exchanges of
scientific information in a relaxed atmosphere and for international
collaborations on DNA replication, DNA repair and recombination, furthering the
analysis of 3R mechanisms. This Symposium was established in 1997 and has been
held every other year until this year (the 5th symposium) in the vicinity of
Osaka, Japan. We expect about 300 participants. The official language in this
Symposium is English. We are looking forward to your participation.
