IBMP symposium: non-coding RNA biology

Friday, January 17, 2020, from 9:30 to 16:15 at the IBMP.

Non-coding RNAs guide diverse molecular machineries that regulate development, control host-pathogen interactions, provide abiotic stress responses and safeguard genomes. During this symposium invited speakers Dr. Szymon Swiezewski (Polish Academy of Sciences, Warsaw, Poland) and Prof. Andrzej Wierzbicki (University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, USA) will present StrasRNA Seminars on long non-coding RNA function in plants.

University of Strasbourg PhD students and recent graduates will present short talks on topics ranging from live imaging of RNA in mammalian cells to regulatory functions of untranslated regions within mRNAs, and the role of small RNAs in regulating bacterial, viral and host genome expression.

   The event will be hosted at the Institut de biologie moléculaire des plantes (IBMP) and attendance is free following registration. Sponsors include the RNA societyIBMP and Laboratoire d’Excellence NetRNA.
