  • Dear participants, dear colleagues,it is a great pleasure for the German Genetics Society to support the upcoming “Third International and Fifteenth Iranian Genetics Congress” , which will take place May 13 – 15, 2018 in Tehran.
    The discipline of genetics was initiated more than 100 years ago and has evolved to a modern and broad research area that is at the heart of a plethora of new developments and techniques.By acting as a co-organizer of this conference, the German Genetics Society seeks to help represent this diversity of fields of genetics at this congress. In doing so, we sincerely hope that this will provide opportunities to initiate new friendships and to foster collaborations and joint projects.In this spirit, we wish you all a successful congress with many new scientific insights and fruitful discussions.
    We look forward to meeting you in Tehran in 2018!
    Ann Ehrenhofer-Murray
    President of the German Genetics Society

  • I am so proud to serve once again as the scientific secretary in 3rd international and 15th Iranian Genetics congress. Rapid advances in the field of Genetics and related disciplines of sciences have been amazing and unimaginable in recent years which is known as post-genomics era. Decoding the human genome is by sure the most important scientific achievement of human being. However, this accomplishment did not stop there, but proceeded towards development of technologies used in next generation sequencing (NGS). NGS not only opened the way for decoding the genomes of other creatures, but also made it possible to decode the genomes of extinct species, including our close relatives (Neanderthals and Denisovans). Identification of various disease-causing genes, developing medicinal biotechnology, expanding bioinformatics applications, production of transgenic plants and animals, personalized medicine, and genome editing by means of CRISPR-Cas are the most important cutting-edge researches nowadays. In this context, it is necessary to work harder and to draw a new road map for Genetics progress in our country, coordinated by the rapid progress of Genetics worldwide. In order to achieve this goal, we are following two major strategies in recent congress. 1- To create a network of genetic researchers and students nation-wide to coordinate the education and research activities in different universities and research institutions. Creating the provincial cores of Genetics Society of Iran was the first step to achieve this aim. 2- Expanding international academic cooperation. Holding up the current meeting as a joint program with German Society of Genetics is a novel feature of the current congress. On the sidelines of this cooperation, we hope to expand and develop scientific collaborations with the European Union. Finally, I hope that the 3rd international and 15th national congress of Iranian genetics provides a dynamic and productive environment to exchange a variety of opinions, and experiences among students and researchers.

    With best regards,

    Seyed Javad Mowla

    Vice-president and co-scientific secretary of the 3rd international and 15th Iranian Genetics congress
