The FY2021 University of Tsukuba Research Presentation of SPRNG (Support for Pioneering Research Initiated by the Next Generation) was held hybrids. Mr. Daiki SHIKATA made presentation at the poster session. Title： Suppression of endogenous retrovirus ERVK in somatic cell nuclear transfer embryos
Dr. Hino visited our laboratory for collaborative experiments with Ogonuki-san. He analyzes chromosomes of spermatocyte-injected oocytes with multicolor FISH, which he originally developed for examination of the oocyte chromosome integrity.
