Dear Guests, Since 2007, ITU MBG Student Club has given an importance of ITU MBG Student Congresses in order to bring all students and scientists working in this field together. As you know from the previous meetings, we are aiming to prepare a useful scientific atmosphere to follow the recent researches of molecular biology and genetics. In this case, students can meet and talk with the keynote professors. In August 2012, we will organize “International ITU 6th Molecular Biology and Genetics Student Congress” with a new-modified concept. We will have 6 different sessions indicated on the below: Session I. Developmental Genetics & Neuroscience Session II. Evolution & Ecology Session III. Drug Discovery & Cancer Session IV. The RNA World & Epigenetics Session V. Biotechnology & Bioinformatics Session VI. Stem Cells & Immunology We will be appreciated to see you in the conference. See you in Istanbul!
