Molecular Regulatory Networks of Life (R’Life) Academy Programme organizes the Second Annual Seminar on Wednesday, 3 November 2021 at 12 noon. The seminar will be held online in English.
The purpose of this second annual seminar is to give the researchers within the programme a chance to get to know each other and the research projects, as well as to discuss the central themes of the programme.
Molecular Regulatory Networks of Life (R’Life) Academy Programme explores how various mechanisms create links between different parts of the genome and gene networks and how these links regulate life functions. The programme yields key information on networks that regulate the function of cells, tissues and individuals. Read more about the programme here!
