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.

11th Clonal meeting 2015
We would like to invite you to the 11th Clonal meeting, which will take place from 4 to 7 August 2015 in Třeboň, Czech Republic. Clonal meetings are a series of conferences that were initiated by Jan van Groenendael, Hans de Kroon and Mike Hutchings about 30 years ago, and have addressed primarily role of clonality in plants and its physiological, ecological and evolutionary implications. These meetings have been rather informal gatherings of plant ecologists interested in plant clonality and established a forum for exchange of ideas and communication of new achievements in this branch of science. Almost each of the meetings has produced a journal special volume.
Course of work in Linux command line not only for MetaCentrum 2015
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.
Course of work with molecular data in R 2015
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.
Select dates of two courses: work in Linux not only for MetaCentrum and work with molecular data in R
First course will focus on work in Linux command line, writing of scripts and use of that knowledge for work with MetaCentrum of CESNET. The second course will be about work with molecular data in R. Both will be taught by Vojtěch Zeisek
PhD defense of Martina Pichrtová
Stress resistance of polar hydro-terrestrial algae Zygnema spp.
