This conference will focus on every aspects of an RNA life from synthesis to regulatory activities. Session will be dedicated to control points that preserve or inactivate the balance of steady state RNA level, from transcription regulation to RNA decay and shuttling. We have carefully designed sessions to deal with small non coding RNA and long non coding RNA, from bacteria to eukaryotes. The keynote lecture will highlight this specific point of interest with the fundamental example of piRNA and genome regulation.
This conference will provide opportunities to get up-to-date with the most recent data in the main fields of the RNA world, such as genome defense, short and long ncRNAs (miRNAs, piRNAs, siRNAs, lincRNAs), transcriptional and post-transcriptional mechanisms, or RNA processing and transport. We have taken great care to select the most exciting new discoveries. All invited speakers have been selected for their scientific excellence in the field.
This meeting will provide a forum to bring together a broad group of scientists with expert knowledge in the functions of RNAs in gene regulations as outlined above. Such a meeting is will enforce communication and interactions between fields that are not always prone to interact. We expect stimulating lectures on fascinating new topics, and new insights in already strong lines of research.
