The meeting is held just before the final decision of Ministry of Science and Higher Education concerning Polish accession to EMBL network. It gives an opportunity to apply for the EMBL laboratory organization in Poland as well as to use on privileged terms the services provided by the EMBL laboratories (e.g. deep sequencing, proteomics, advanced microscopy, etc.). For the purpose of making the molecular biology scientific community acquianted with the opportunities provided by EMBL joining, the Faculty of Biology, AMU is visited by Dr. Vladimir Benes, Head of Genomics Core Facility, EMBL, Dr. Silke Schumacher, Director International Relations, EMBL and Dr Jan Kosinski, Polish postdoctoral researcher at EMBL.
