lncRNAs take center stage at NCI RNA Biology 2017 symposium

rna-seq

The recent discovery of new classes of RNAs and the demonstration that alterations in RNA metabolism underlie numerous human cancers have resulted in enormous interest among CCR investigators in RNA Biology. In order to share the latest research in this exciting field, the CCR Initiative in RNA Biology held its second international symposium April 23-24, 2017, in Natcher Auditorium. With ...

2nd International Conference on the Long and the Short of Non-Coding RNAs

lncrna

When: 09/06/2017 – 14/06/2017 Where: Heraklion, Crete, Greece Conference Center: Aldemar Knossos Royal Village Conference Center It has been more than a decade since scientists realized that microRNAs (miRNAs) and Piwi-interacting RNA (piRNAs) are not mere oddities invented by worms and flies to regulate gene expression at epigenetic and post-transcriptional levels. Rather, many of these 21-31-nucleotide-short RNAs function in invertebrates ...

Affymetrix to Sponsor New Webinar Focusing on the Importance of Understanding lncRNAs in Breast Cancer Progression and Tumorigenesis

lncRNA

Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in women and is the second leading cause of cancer death among women. Hundreds of thousands of women worldwide lose their battle against this cancer each year, and it is estimated that one in eight US women will develop invasive breast cancer in her lifetime. The heterogeneity of breast cancer, with its ...

Webinar – Evolinc – Identification and Evolutionary Analysis of lncRNA

lncRNA

In this webinar, we present Evolinc, a two-part set of apps in the CyVerse Discovery Environment (DE). Evolinc-I is designed to make long non-coding RNA (lncRNA) identification easy and reproducible, regardless of the system. Evolinc-II compares such lncRNAs to determine whether they are conserved at the genomic or transcriptomic level in various species. This information is helpful in curating lncRNA ...

Non-coding RNA in infection – 18–24 September 2016 – Würzburg, Germany

lncRNA

Infections are an intricate interplay between hosts and pathogens involving dynamic changes in gene expression. This does not only involve changes in the expression of protein coding genes but also of large diverse groups of non-coding RNAs in the host and pathogens. However, in the vast majority of cases the biological roles and mechanisms of action of non-coding RNAs remain ...
