Ribosome synthesis

Ribosomes are multi-component ribonucleoprotein particles responsible for protein synthesis. The biogenesis of ribosomes is highly organized and controlled. Generally, this process requires multiple steps and factors. Moreover, altered synthesis of ribosomal subunits is linked to changes cell growth, pathogenesis and disease.
Session Topics will include:

prokaryotic and eukaryotic ribosome assembly
rRNA transcription and processing
ribophagy and quality control
snoRNPs and modifications
trans-acting assembly factors
ribosome synthesis and growth regulation
ribosome biogenesis and disease
