In the early 21st century, Biology has become a science contributing to resolve problems traditionally distant to the field of life sciences, but that are having an increasing impact over our lives and societies. This is the topic we will address in the new "Open Class" programmed by the Fundación, The new challenges of Biology: from Neanderthals to the "Prestige". Eight scientists will address through eight conferences how can genetics be used as tool for historical and criminal research, the role of the bacteria in the preservation of the environment, or the cellular machinery of the living beings, among other topics.
18-19,30 h. Session for teachers. With restricted entrance through previous free registration.
Deadline until the 13th March 2006. Limited places.
19,30-21 h. Conference. Free entrance.
