On Friday 29th September, the 9th Colloquium on Genetics, organized by the Genetic Society of Slovenia (GSS) in cooperation with Slovenian Society of Human Genetics (SSHG) took place at the Marine Biology Station Piran. The colloquium was aimed at presenting the results of the work of young researchers working in different fields of genetics such as microbial, animal, plant and human genetics.
