A year has just passed since the launch of the COVID-19 Diagnostics Laboratory at the Institute of Human Genetics PAS, which supports the fight against the pandemic. During this time, we examined nearly 40 thousand. samples. Diagnostic activity is carried out under orders of individuals, entities and a contract with the National Health Fund.
On the initiative of the Biotechnology Commission at the Branch of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Poznań, “Biotechnology 2020. What do we ask most often?” „Biotechnologia 2020. O co najczęściej pytamy?” edited by Marlena Szalata, Ryszard Słomski and Tomasz Twardowski was prepared.
Two research grants of the Institute of Human Gentics PAS have been awarded by National Science Center
Prof. Ryszard Słomski has been appointed an expert of the InterAcademy Partnership (IAP) organization and will act as the “member academy Focal Point”.
The Institute of Human Genetics PAS (coordinator) in cooperation with the University of Ghent (Belgium), the University of Ulm (Germany) and the University of Groningen (Netherlands) from January 2021 starts implementation of the project entitled ‘On the road to excellence in unravelling the (epi) genetic landscape of hematologic neoplasms’ – NEXT LEVEL, financed by the Horizon 2020 Program within the Twinning call. The consortium will receive funding of EUR 899 525.
In the latest edition of the Journal Citation Reports, published by Clarivate Analytics, which contains Impact Factor indices for all evaluated scientific journals, the Journal of Applied Genetics, co-edited by our Institute in the field of human genetics, obtained a 2-year IF’2019 = 2.027, with a 5-year IF’2019 = 1.954. In this way, the JAG exceeded the 2-year IF value of 2 for the first time in its history.
