Open Day IPK Gatersleben
The Institute of plant genetics and crop plant research (IPK) in Leibniz has an “Open Day” that will be dedicated to the 200th birthday of Gregor Mendel. The Keynote speaker will be Prof. Dr. Uwe Hoßfeld, giving insights into current Mendel research. With this lecture they will honour the “father of genetics”, but also reflect on the impact of his work on their own research. The significance of the laws of heredity that Mendel discovered was only recognised years after his death. To this day, they are a foundation of knowledge-based and rational plant research.
In addition to the keynote lecture, they are conducting a “Gatersleben Discussion Workshop”.
