Conference Background
The 1st World Congress of Gene (WCG) is the most influential congress that BIT organized in the past four years. The aim of t is to follow up the commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the publication of DNA double-helix structure in Nature from April 25, 1953 by Dr. James Watson and Dr. Francis Crick. In 2003, US Congress designated April 25 of every year as National DNA Day and the whole April as Genome Month. National DNA Day has provided a significant occasion for young generations to learn genetics.

For such a purpose, BIT sponsored a new meeting platform creation; WCG has received broad support from those world leading research institutes. With many leading scientists involved in such operation, and those institutions already actively involved in DNA Day celebration in the past .....
