6 Nobel Prize Winners at International Congress of Genetics
Date:6/2/2008

For the first time in 81 years the International Congress of Genetics takes place in Germany again. From July 12th through 17th 2008, six Nobel Prize winners get together with more than 2000 scientists in Berlin to discuss the latest findings in genetics and genome analysis. The congress, which takes place for the 20th time, was last hosted by Germany in 1927, the venue also being Berlin. Congress Chairman is Prof. Rudi Balling, Scientific Director of the Helmholtz Centre for Infection Research in Braunschweig. To him, the 20th ICG in Berlin stresses the high international reputation of genetic sciences in Germany. "We are as happy as if we had brought the Olympic games into the country", says Balling.

The congress topics include all relevant genetic fields. Stem cell research, the genetics of cancer, applied plant genetics, and new, futuristic topics like synthetic biology will attract the media's attention. More than 280 renowned speakers, 10 plenary sessions, 54 symposia, and 1400 scientific posters offer insight into the diversity of current genetic research and science. Aside from the role genetic engineering might play in fighting hunger, legal and ethical aspects of genetic research will also be discussed. The history of the genetic field itself will be the topic of one symposium. The congress is hosted by the Deutsche Gesellschaft fr Genetik (GfG; German Genetics Society).
