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 ...

Upcoming Conference – Long Noncoding RNAs: From Evolution to Function

lncrna

Scientific Organizers: Leonard Lipovich, Jeannie T. Lee, John L. Rinn and James (Ben) Brown March 15—20, 2015 Keystone Resort, Keystone, Colorado, USA Sponsored by Cell Research, Isis Pharmaceuticals, Inc., Regeneron Pharmaceuticals, Inc. and Sarepta Therapeutics Meeting Summary It has become clear that metazoan genomes are replete with transcription from non-protein-coding regions, generating many long noncoding RNA (lncRNA) transcripts. Recent progress ...

Transcriptomics to Therapeutics: Bridging the lncRNA Divide

Kip Harry Life Science Professional Join a focused discussion group on the therapeutic potential of lncRNA, addressing the following questions: Have exomes and RNA-Seq hindered, rather than helped, lncRNA disease genomics? How can we proceed from disease lncRNA discovery, in GWAS and functional studies, to translational therapeutics? Which of the currently known lncRNA mechanisms present the best opportunities for therapeutic ...
