Long non-coding RNAs: evolution of new epigenetic and post-transcriptional functions

Theo Murphy scientific meeting organised by Professor Leonard Lipovich, Professor John Rinn, Professor Douglas Higgs FRS, Professor Nicholas Proudfoot FRS and Professor Lynne Maquat.

Event details

The discovery that long non-protein-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) are prevalent in metazoan transcriptomes has been a highlight of the second post-genomic decade. Unexpectedly, lncRNAs mediate remarkably diverse cellular mechanisms. This meeting will synthesise insights that derive from next-generation sequencing, functional genomics, and lncRNA structure and function to augment our understanding of how lncRNAs contribute to species uniqueness and to human disease.

The draft programme, and abstracts and biographies of the speakers will be made available shortly. Recorded audio of the presentations will be available on this page after the event.

Attending this event

This is a residential conference, which allows for increased discussion and networking. It is free to attend, however participants need to cover their accommodation and catering costs if required.
