THE CENTRAL EUROPEAN MEETING ON GENES, GENE EXPRESSION, AND BEHAVIOUR is to be held in the Czech Republic in Nové Hrady from October 30 to November 1, 2014. The conference is organized by the Department of Zoology, Faculty of Science, Charles University in Prague and Institute of Vertebrate Biology Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic (IVB AS CR).




Aims and scope of the meeting:

The aim of the meeting is to bring scientists studying functional aspects of genetic differentiation during speciation and mechanisms of phenotype plasticity on the level of transcription, translation and behaviour in animals. Scientists using diverse methodologies (NextGen / 4-5-4 sequencing, Real-time PCR, Proteomics, behaviour e.t.c.) and using various animal models (inbred strains, GMO / knockouts, wild organisms etc) are particularly welcome to attend in the hope that such mixture of people may open various new discussions and potentially also collaborative effort.

Next generation sequencing (NGS) workshop from October 27 to 29 at the Nové Hrady

Intensive theoretical and practical 3 days’ workshop focused on NGS methods and handling of NGS data will precede the conference. The workshop is designed for Czech Master students, PhD-students and post-docs currently or prospectively working on NGS analysis. Unfortunately students from Prague are not allowed to apply.

Preliminary program and more information about the workshop can be found on the web page of project Nextgen of IVB AS CR: http://nextgen.ivb.cz
