Workshop on population genetics of polyploids 24-25.1. 2017
There will be a short workshop on population genetics of polyploids.
Course of work with molecular data in R 2017
R is nowadays probably the most powerful tool for statistics of all types. There are plenty of modules available for work with molecular data. Those will be introduced during the course. Previous knowledge of R is useful, but not necessary.
Course of work in Linux command line not only for MetaCentrum 2017
Don’t be afraid of command line! It is friendly and powerful tool. Practically identical is command line also in Mac OS X, BSD and another UNIX-based systems, not only in Linux. Basic knowledge of Linux is not conditional. Course will be taught in Linux, but most of the point are applicable also for another UNIX systems like Mac OS X.
Lectures about relationships of plants and fungi
Two talks from our Estonian guests.
Lecture of Segio Rasmann
Elevation gradients drives the evolution of plant defence strategies against herbivores.
Marine phycology course 2016
This course is concentrated on biodiversity of marine algae communities in the Mediterranean or along the European north coasts (Baltic, North Sea). In addition, marine phytoplankton is also demonstrated during the course that takes place usually in September.
Hyb-Seq NGS course
Do you want to start a phylogenomic project and sequence hundreds of genes in parallel? Do you want to learn how to prepare probes for enrichment of sequencing libraries in your species? Do you want to learn how to process NGS reads and produce a species tree?
Renovation of server hardware and software updates
There is a time to update hardware of our departmental server. It will give us better performance. We will exchange hard drives for 2x2 TB to double capacity for users' data and 2x480 GB SSD for better performance. We will also update server operating system.

Seminar of candidates for PhD positions in the Institute of Botany
Seminar of candidates from the Department of Botany asking for Ph.D. position in the Institute of Botany.
Popular Science: A way to discover the true species diversity of single-celled organisms?
What is the true diversity of organisms on our planet? That is the question that keeps many scientists awake at night. Interestingly, until now many more macroscopic organisms have been described than the very smallest ones, invisible to the naked eye. But one would probably assume that those tiny organisms will be more abundant as they've had obviously much more time for their differentiation.
Faculty News: Charles University will have the long expected campus at Albertov
Charles University has announced an architectural contest for the building of two new research sites at Albertov, Prague. It’s the University’s largest building project in the center of Prague in the last hundred years. The project will involve new state-of-the-art research sites, top notch laboratories and classrooms, and also refectories and venues for social events, all located in the area where currently thousands of students and academic staff members study, work, and live. The name of the project is Campus Albertov, to become an important center of scientific and medicinal research at Charles University. The campus should open in the start of 2022. The jury of the contest will feature, among others, important Czech architects Josef Pleskot and Ladislav Lábus.
Ph.D. defences in September 2015
There are three!
Conference of the Czech Society for Ecology
Dear colleagues, let me remind you the approaching deadline (31st August) for abstract submission at the 5th conference of the Czech Society for Ecology, held in České Budějovice, Czech Republic, on 23rd–25th October 2015.
Lecture Colonization success of polyploids: insights from the cytotype shift in Centaurea stoebe s.l.
Invitation on (additional) research seminar by Christoph Rosche, Martin Luther University, Halle, Germany.
Popular Science: Tug-of-war between parents and children: clonal spread boundaries
How do plants spread? Through seeds, of course - that is what most people would reply quite automatically. The truth, however, is that many plants also use much more effective mechanisms for flooding their surroundings with off-springs, e.g. stolons and rhizomes. (Charles University) Faculty of Science botanists have endeavoured to discover a clearly-set strategy behind this type of spread.
Phytolith Analysis: A Botanical Tool for Archaeological and Environmental Purposes
ÁkosPetö (Laboratory for Conservation and Applied Research, National Heritage Protection Centre, Hungarian National Museum): Phytolith analysis as a tool for reconstructions in archaeobotany and palaeoecology
More than a root: the systematics and evolution of gingers
Axel Dalberg Poulsen, Head of Botanical Garden, Natural History Museum, Oslo. Seminar of the Department of Botany.
