Non-Coding RNA: New Mechanisms and Approaches

Emerging new roles of non-coding RNA are transforming biology. Leaders in the field will report on advances in our understanding of RNA in genome stability, immunology, epigenetic inheritance. This meeting will cover a range of systems including protists, invertebrates and mammals. A major focus will be how to translate new RNA mechanisms into new therapeutic approaches.

Topics:
- lncRNA
- mobile RNA
- RNA and immunity
- RNA memory
- RNA and epigenetic
