About Genes, Genetics & Genomics (G3)




This one-day symposium is organized by 1st Faculty of Medicine, Charles University in Prague and the Institute of Haematology and Blood Transfusion, and it aims to summarize recent discoveries on physiological as well as pathological cellular and molecular processes achieved by using global “omics-” and systems-biology methodologies as well as focused biochemical functional approaches.

Diverse research areas will be covered, including gene regulation at the levels of chromatin structure, transcription, post-transcriptional control of gene function by ncRNAs and alternative splicing, impact of the environmental stimuli and their cross-talk with the cellular signaling and gene regulation networks and effects on the genetic make-up of target cells.

An important emphasis of the presentations will be aimed at the latest technological advances in genetic manipulations, high-throughput genomics and proteomics and the contribution of these techniques to our improved understanding of stem cell biology, embryonic development, cell differentiation, tissue homeostasis and of the onset of pathological processes including malignancies.

The symposium is open to a broad interested biomedical audience on first-come first serve basis, preregistration is required. The number of attendees at the G3 2014 Symposium venue might be limited ad hoc only based on the seating unavailability. The language of the presentations is English.

All presentations will be held on April 11th, 2014 (see the Program page for details), at this location: Na Bojišti 3, 1st Faculty of Medicine, Charles University in Prague
