Biochemistry congress 2021
The 26th Biochemical Congress in České Budějovice (Czech Republic) will take place from August 29th – September 1st, 2021 under the motto "Life is Biochemistry, Biochemistry is Life". The congress returns to the South Bohemian metropolis after thirteen years and was last hosted by the university-academic campus in České Budějovice in 2008. Since then, much has happened in life sciences including biochemistry and molecular biology, but also at the congress venue itself. The joint university-academic campus of the University of South Bohemia (USB) and the Biology Centre of the Czech Academy of Sciences (BC CAS) in České Budějovice has grown in less than 30 years, and is further developing the goal of fulfilling the vision of an internationally respected centre of life sciences especially in the field of evolutionary biology and ecology as well as selected issues of biomedicine.
The 26th Biochemical Congress is organized in the spirit of tradition by the Czech Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology in cooperation with the Slovak Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, and with the organizational participation of the USB Faculty of Science and the BC CAS Institutes in České Budějovice. For the first time, the congress is organized fully in English (with the exception of the section for secondary school students) and with the participation of foreign colleagues. The thematic structure of the congress scientific sections was chosen to correspond to the traditional structure, and at same time to reflect currently the latest achievements in molecular life sciences.
