Dear geneticists, friends of Gregor Johann Mendel,
In 2022, we will celebrate the bicentennial of the birth of the father of genetics, Gregor Johann Mendel. We are already preparing an interdisciplinary conference to pay tribute to this pre-eminent scientist of the 19th century.
The conference will take place in Brno, where the foundations of genetics were laid. In addition to prestigious lectures, participants will have the opportunity to visit places associated with the work of G. J. Mendel, such as the Augustinian Abbey, the Mendel Museum, the Mendelianum.
A number of side events will be offered in the accompanying cultural program, including the possibility of visiting Mendel’s birth house on 1.5-hour drive from Brno.
