ATAMI, JAPAN-- Some 200 geneticists came together last month in this hot springs resort in the foothills of Mount Fuji to celebrate the 70th birthday of renowned evolutionary geneticist Masatoshi Nei. Born and educated in Japan, Nei has spent more than 30 years at U.S. universities, most recently Pennsylvania State University, University Park, and has trained many of the scientists making presentations here. In addition to conveying their appreciation, participants discussed cancer genes, speciation, and the impact of replication timing on genetic fidelity.
