An international scientific conference on the occasion of Mendel's anniversary will take place in July

16. 2. 2022
This year we celebrate the bicentennial of the birth of the father of genetics, Gregor Johann Mendel. To pay tribute to this pre-eminent scientist, Mendel Genetics Conference will take place between 20–23 July 2022, in Brno, the city where Mendel spent a substantial part of his life, and where he laid the foundations of genetics.

This UNESCO-acknowledged multidisciplinary genetic event will present discussions on discoveries sparked by Mendel’s own work, including human genetics (inherited diseases, cancer genetics, and gene therapy), plant and animal genetics, emerging technologies in genetic research, ethical questions, and history of genetics. For more, see the preliminary program.

We are happy to be joined by esteemed experts on the subject, Nobel Prize laureates among them (prof. Thomas Cech from the University of Colorado and sir Paul Nurse from The Francis Crick Institute), to present at the conference. See our list of speakers to learn more.

The registration is open until 31 May 2022. The abstract submission deadline is 31 March 2022. More information about submission is here.
