Biogenesis and turnover of small RNAs

In the last decade, high throughput sequencing has enabled a rapid expansion in the identification of small RNAs that exist within a cell. These small RNAs have been shown to play diverse roles in gene regulation and genome defense. The aim of this meeting is to bring together scientists studying the biology of small RNAs, focusing on biogenesis and function.
