DNA 24

Research in DNA computing and molecular programming draws together mathematics, computer science, physics, chemistry, biology, and nanotechnology to address the analysis, design, and synthesis of information-based molecular systems. This annual meeting is the premier forum where scientists with diverse backgrounds come together with the common purpose of applying principles and tools of computer science, physics, chemistry and mathematics to advance molecular-scale engineering and biology. The 24th International Conference on DNA Computing and Molecular Programming (DNA 24), organized under the auspices of the International Society for Nanoscale Science, Computation and Engineering (ISNSCE), will focus on the most important recent experimental and theoretical results.

Invitation Letter

    On behalf of the Organizing Committee, we would like to invite you to participate in DNA24, to be held from October 8th to 12th, 2018 at the Shandong Normal University in Jinan City, Shandong province, China.

    It is an unmissable event for DNA computing and molecular programming experts and colleagues to present and share their latest research results face to face.

    Jinan, known as the Spring City, is situated on the east central part of China, facing the Jiaodong Peninsula. It is the political, economic, scientific and technological and cultural center of Shandong province, as well as the largest transportation junction. Jinan geographically is located in the Mountain Tai area, with multiple famous springs and mountainous scenery. It is a famous city for tourism and vacation.

    We will provide every attendee a great platform to learn about the best science! Looking forward to welcoming you to Jinan.
