  • A gene is a hereditary unit which has effects on the traits and thus on the phenotype of an organism. Part on the DNA which contains genetic information for the synthesis of a protein or functional RNA (e.g. tRNA).
  • The genome is entire genetic material of an organism. Each cell of an organism contains the entire genetic material in its nucleus.
  • Biomolecules which can bind active agents are called targets. They can be receptors, enzymes or ion channels. If agent and target interact with each other the term agent-target-specific effect is used. The identification of targets is very important in biomedical and pharmaceutical research because a specific interaction can help to understand basic biomolecular processes. This is essential to identify new points of application.

BIO International Convention ist one of the worlds largest biotech conferences with exhibition and partnering. The biotech location Baden-Württemberg will be represented at BIO 2018 by a joint booth of BIOPRO Baden-Württemberg, Baden-Württemberg International and the initiative Start-up BW of the Ministry of Economic Affairs, Labour and Housing Baden-Württemberg.
