Upcoming Symposium – Noncoding RNAs: Current and Future Trends

lncrna

Since the discovery of the catalytic role of RNAs three decades ago and the discovery of microRNAs two decades ago, the field has exploded with exciting new developments, many made possible by groundbreaking new technologies. Watch this lively panel discussion moderated by Frank Slack and then ask the panelists your questions. Among other topics, the discussion will focus on: How ...

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 ...

Lengthy RNAs earn respect as cellular players

lncRNA

from Science by Elizabeth Pennisi Surveys have uncovered thousands of long non-coding RNAs, molecules longer than 200 bases, and several groups have linked specific ones to development, cancer, pain, inflammation, and much more. There are lingering questions, however, about whether most of these molecules are functional or just spurious byproducts of transcription. At the recent Biology of Genomes meeting, several ...

Upcoming Seminar – Long noncoding RNA: transcription noise or biological modulator? A view from studies in embryonic stem cells

Dr. Xiaohua Shen, Associate Professor Tsinghua University, Beijing, China Wednesday, June 25, 2014 – 11:00am CCBR Red Room Abstract: Pervasive transcription in mammalian genome produces thousands of long noncoding RNA (lncRNA) transcripts. It has been hypothesized that lncRNAs as versatile modulators regulate diverse aspects of biology. However, their biological significance remains skeptical due to healthy concerns of subtle phenotypic differences ...
