The scientist video and the informative video on the ENCODE Project Symposium, 10 years after the human genome sequence, are now available on Biocat’s YouTube channel. This meeting was organized by the Center for Genomic Regulation (CRG) and the International Center for Scientific Debate (ICSD) in Barcelona.

ENCODE, one of the most important projects of the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI), was created in 2003 to understand how the human genome works. This was the first time this type of meeting was held outside the United States.

Professor Roderic Guigó takes an entertaining approach to explain the benefits of this study for the general public’s quality of life. This video also features the president of the Biocat Executive Committee, Manel Balcells, and the director of the CIDC, Miquel Martí, who explained that the symposium “has allowed us to bring together the top researchers on this project with the Catalan scientific community, showing off our country’s assets in biotechnology and biomedicine research.
