Dear Colleagues,

It is my great pleasure to invite you to the first CCP Phenogenomics Conference. The thematic focus of this year’s conference is on topics around RNA, especially long non-coding RNA and on metabolism. The Conference will provide an excellent opportunity to support networking and interactions among the CCP users. We are looking forward to meeting you in September 2019.

Yours sincerely,

Radislav Sedlacek
Director of the Czech Centre for Phenogenomics
Institute of Molecular Genetics of the Czech Academy of Sciences

Czech Centre for Phenogenomics (CCP)

CCP is a large research infrastructure unique in combining genetic engineering capabilities, advanced phenotyping and imaging modalities, SPF animal housing and husbandry, as well as cryopreservation and archiving, all in one central location – at BIOCEV campus.

Through its membership in INFRAFRONTIER and IMPC, CCP is a partner in a global network that aims to comprehensively and systematically analyze the effect of loss of function gene mutations in mice. The goal is to produce a comprehensive ‘encyclopedia‘ of gene function, that will help identify causative factors of human diseases as well as novel targets for therapeutic intervention.
