Prof. Dr. Wilhelm J. Ansorge, Ph.D. is the second speaker of Mendel-Zirm Lecture Series. He will present his work Genome Analysis Techniques in Biology and Medicine. His laboratory pioneered multidisciplinary developments of automated technology and techniques in : Sequencing and Analysis of genomes, first complete Human Genome Chip Array (and the International standard protocol for microarrays MIAME), devices for synthesis and analysis of DNA and proteins, Automated Systems for Microinjection and Image Analysis in Single Cells, Fast Screening of Monoclonal Antibodies, Electro-transfection of cells. He investigated magnetic properties of materials, worked in design of semiconductor devices, and of superconducting magnets. Wilhelm Ansorge co-authored over 250 publications, some included in Teaching material by universities worldwide (e.g. Next Generation DNA Sequencing review (I) in 2009, its updated version (II) in 2016), and 5 books on Molecular Diagnostics, Genomics, Microarrays techniques, DNA Sequencing and Analysis.

The Mendel-Zirm Lecture Series is a new series of lectures given by the leading scientists in genetics, oncology, biomedicine, molecular biology, toxicology, biochemistry, microbiology, chemistry, medicine and other related research disciplines. The lectures which are open to wide public interested in new developments and discoveries in biomedicine are held once in 1-2 months at the Institute of Molecular and Translational Medicine. The Mendel-Zirm Lecture Series is named in honour of two significant scientists whose education or professional life is tied up with Olomouc: 

Johann Gregor Mendel, father of genetics, who was born nearby Olomouc (Hynčice) and studied Philosophical Faculty of Olomouc University (nowadays Palacky University). 
Eduard Konrad Zirm, ophthalmologists who performed in Olomouc the first successful human tissue transplantation (full-thickness corneal transplant) in Olomouc, December 7, 1905. 

The Mendel-Zirm Lecture Series seeks specialist from interdisciplinary areas in order to introduce latest approaches, technologies and methods to attending colleagues. The main purpose of the lecture series is to create a network of contacts from growing areas in order to educate both scientists and students. The invited speakers facilitate interactions between individual departments. The series hope to attract a diverse audience including professionals, staff, students and public by discussing new research on science and health issues.
