On November 5th and 6th, the annual student symposium was held at Vienna Biocenter in Vienna, the home of Lexogen GmbH. The main topic of the symposioum was “Communication – let’s talk about it” with great talks on that topic ranging from molecular neuroscience and immunology to plant science and biolinguistics with invited speakers from all over the world. It was organised by grad students from the four research institutes located at VBC: Institute of Molecular Pathology (IMP), Gregor Mendel Institute of Molecular Plant Biology (GMI), Max F. Perutz Laboratories (MFPL) and Institute of Molecular Biotechnology (IMBA).
Lexogen sponsored this event and was also present with an exhibition booth to present our company. We enjoyed talking to so many students and speakers about Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) and transcriptomics and were fascinated to see how eager people were to get introduced to this technology and our products. Also we would like to thank the numerous participants of our movie quiz, we really enjoyed this fun with you! The winners will be notified via e-mail.
