ABOUT

Welcome Remarks

Coding and noncoding RNAs are the central players in gene expression. Yet, their action mechanisms and functions remain largely unexplored and continue to surprise us. In this concentrated 3-day meeting, we will bring together the leaders in RNA biology to share and discuss the latest results on RNA-protein interaction in RNA splicing, tailing, methylation, decay, and translation, and their connections to human diseases and development. We will also hear about exciting new developments from short and long noncoding RNAs. Furthermore, the sessions will cover the emerging new RNA techniques covering single cell sequencing, nanopore sequencing, live cell imaging, and nanoparticle-based RNA delivery.

Date & Venue

November 5 – 7, 2018

Global Convention Plaza (Bldg. 38), SNU Campus, Seoul, Korea
