Eukaryotic RNA Turnover: From Structural Insights to Diseases
Sunday, April 21st - Wednesday, April 24th 2013
- Auditorium, IGBMC
Hosted by Bertrand SERAPHIN
This meeting aims to spur discussions on the latest results in the field of eukaryotic RNA turnover including medical implications of RNA degradation and its role in genetic diseases, integration of RNA decay in cellular functions and networks, transcriptome-wide analyses of mRNA decay, systems biology approaches assessing the contribution of RNA turnover to global gene expression programs, identity and atomic structures of RNA decay factors, as well as on the organization of these factors in complexes and pathways and their mode of regulation. The diversity of mechanisms used by unicellular and multicellular organisms, including surveillance pathways, will be explored. The conference will provide a platform for presenting advances in methods development and the use of interdisciplinary approaches.
