Dear geneticists, friends of Gregor Johann Mendel,

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 of the 19th century, 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.

Cyril Napp Scholarship for researchers from Ukraine

The Organizing Committee of the Mendel Genetics Conference has decided to support researchers from Ukraine by announcing the Cyril Napp Scholarship. Cyril Napp was an Augustinian abbot who recognized Mendel’s scientific talent, supported Mendel in his university studies, and created the conditions for his experiments on pea crossing.
