RNA Biology

We are pleased to announce the 2nd Cold Spring Harbor Asia conference on RNA Biology which will be held at the Suzhou Dushu Lake Conference Center in Suzhou, China, located approximately 60 miles west of Shanghai.The conference will begin at 7:00pm on the evening of Monday October 8, and will conclude after lunch on Friday October 12, 2012.

This conference is similar in design to the famous Cold Spring Harbor meetings series, a program now in its 76th year. The conference will include eight oral sessions and one poster session. Many talks will be selected from the openly submitted abstracts on the basis of scientific merit and relevance. Social events throughout the conference provide ample opportunity for informal interactions.

Major Topics:
- RNA processing
- RNA export
- Translation
- Short and long non-coding RNA
- RNA interference
- RNA-protein interactions
- RNA structure
- RNA catalysis
- RNA networks
- Viral RNA regulation
- RNA therapeutics
