IUPAC (International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry) is an international federation of National Adhering Organizations that represents chemists in individual countries. IUPAC is best known for its works standardizing nomenclature in chemistry and other fields of science, but IUPAC has publications in many fields including chemistry, biology and physics. Some important work IUPAC has done in these fields includes standardizing nucleotide base sequence code names; publishing books for environmental scientists, chemists, and physicists; and leading the way in improving education in science.

SIRET (SImilarity RETrieval) research group (SRG) was founded in 2006 at the Department of Software Engineering, Faculty of Mathematics and Physics, Charles University in Prague. SRG deals with database methods for efficient and effective similarity search in databases of complex unstructured objects. In particular, SRG is interested in three areas - general methods of indexing similarity (metric and nonmetric spaces), biological applications of the similarity search, and indexing image databases for content-based retrieval.
Laboratory of Cell Differentiation, Institute of Molecular Genetics, Prague uses chemical genetics to dissect signalling pathways regulating cell fate during haematopoietic, mesenchymal and neuronal stem cell development. Another research area are the nuclear hormone receptors as pleiotropic and potent effectors of self-renewal, cell proliferation and differentiation.
