Music genes and musical geniuses

possible applications for patients with different medical problems as well as potential treatments based on listening and producing music?

The idea of combining music and genetics in a single event grew up within the European Genetics Foundation, on initiative of Professor Giovanni Romeo, medical geneticist at the University of Bologna: “We realized how music is in itself an extraordinary communication vehicle, also when discussing scientific topics. But we also understood the existence of many analogies between the evolution of languages and cultures (with music at the very top) and various aspects of human evolution. Music highlights the cultural links between populations; likewise genetics gives us the means to highlight biological kinships. In this logic, we thought it would be interesting to gather musicians and researchers in a single event, to offer meetings and debates as well as entertainment to the general audience?

Each participant may submit a poster abstract by filling in the appropriate form available on the European Genetics Foundation’s website before March 31, 2007. The selected posters will be exhibited in a specific area at the Workshop venue, where authors will have the opportunity to present their work to all participants. A book of abstracts will be distributed at the beginning of the Workshop and the proceedings published in electronic and/or paper format after the event.

In addition to the round table discussions and meetings with scientists, the Festival of Music and Genetics will offer a rich calendar of concerts to entertain participating delegates. The overall framework of the event is the music and culture of Mongolia, the Festival’s guest Country.
