V Frontiers Scientific Dialogue: The basics of biology: the genome or the cell?#

Venue: Reial Acadèmia de Ciències i Arts de Barcelona, La Rambla, 115
Date: 25 June, 2024, 18:00 - 19:30
Access code: 032577

Genome-centered biology emphasizes the role of genetic information encoded within DNA as the primary determinant of an organism’s traits and functions. Meanwhile, cell-centered biology underscores the importance of the cell as the basic unit of life, focusing on its complex structures, functions, and interactions within the environment. Yet, contemporary understanding acknowledges the inseparable relationship between genes and cells, recognizing that genetic instructions from the genome are executed within the dynamic environment of the cell. Is the integration of both perspectives possible? Could we consider the interplay between genetic information and cellular dynamics in shaping life’s intricacies? Is there a solid departure point or is it just a lack of knowledge?

The event is organized by the Academia Europaea Barcelona Knowledge Hub.

Invited speakers:#

  • Alfonso Martinez-Arias, ICREA Senior research professor, Barcelona
