As part of the Congress of the Slovenian Genetic Society, we also organize a competition for the Golden Chromosome for young geneticists. The lecture section for the Golden Chromosome is intended to present the work of younger members of SGD who are at the beginning of their independent scientific path. Experience in previous years has shown that the Golden Chromosome lectures provide a good overview of current research projects, often involving colleagues from institutions abroad, and offer a good insight into the research dynamics among the younger members of SGD.
This year there will again be a competition for the Golden Chromosome, in which we would be pleased to have as many participants as possible. Participation is open to all young researchers up to the age of 35, for whom no more than one year has passed since the defense of the PhD thesis. In evaluating participants, we will consider the timeliness of the topic, the quality of the research, and the quality of the presentation at the congress. The condition for participation is that at least part of the research work has been carried out in Slovenia.
