6th International Congress of the Molecular Biology Association of Turkey

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

We are pleased to announce that the 6th International Congress of the Molecular Biology Association of Turkey (MolBiyoKon) will be held in Izmir between September 05-08 2018.

Founded in 2011, the Molecular Biology Association of Turkey aims to bring together the community of molecular biologists from Turkey and abroad to support the development of molecular biology, a relatively young field of science in Turkey.

The annual MolBiyoKon is one of the primary and noteworthy international conferences in the field of molecular biology in Turkey. The congress aims to bring together researchers from all around the world to exchange research results, scientific observations and ideas, as well as to motivate and inspire students to pursue their career and education in life sciences.

The 5th International Congress of the Molecular Biology Association of Turkey held in Bogazici University last year was a huge success that brought together more than 350 scientists from around the globe, and it became the new benchmark for the upcoming MolBiyoKon conferences. We thank all participants, speakers, sponsors and those involved in the organization.

We are very pleased and excited to be part of this event and hope you will be able to join us at MolBiyoKon 2018!
