DNA Sequence is pleased to announce its participation in the 2nd Greek-Chinese International Conference on Environment and Culture, which will be held digitally from 17-19 September 2021.

The 2nd International Conference (https://shap-conference.com) is one of the activities of the "Sino-Hellenic Academic Project" of the Hellenic Culture Research Centre, the Yellow River Culture Research Centre in Greece and the Collaborative Innovation Centre for Yellow River Culture and Sustainable Development.

At the conference, the results of the application of the unique technology of DNA Sequence Archaeogene, which was applied in collaboration with Professor Ioannis Lyritzis, will be presented on archaeological finds from the Mycenaean settlement at Kastrouli in Fokida. More specifically, through the publication "Whole Genome Sequencing Approach Revealed Microbial Species in Mycenaean Period Associated Residual Plant Biomass: First Results", new technologies for sequencing microbial DNA from archaeological finds will be presented that can provide valuable information for Αrchaeometry.

The Conference is under the auspices of the Ministry of Tourism, the Ministry of Culture and Sports, the Region of Central Greece, the Municipality of Delphi and the Embassy of the People's Republic of China in the Hellenic Republic.  In addition, it is officially supported by the European Academy of Sciences and Arts, the Institute of Geology and Geophysics, the Chinese Academy of Sciences, many Greek and foreign Universities, the Hellenic Pharmaceutical Association and other organizations.
The Hellenic agricultural organization ELGO-DIMITRA approved the cooperation with DNA Sequence SRL through the signing of a Protocol of Cooperation, with the aim of broader cooperation in research and innovation areas and in particular in actions such as supporting the researchers of the Institute of Genetic Improvement and Plant Genetic Resources in actions of common interest related to agrogenomics, post-genomics, molecular biodiversity discrimination and bioinformatics data analysis, and transfer of know-how between the two partners.
