Upcoming miRNA Conferences

EMBO Conference - Protein Synthesis and Translational Control

Starts: 12:00 am

Ends: 12:00 am, September 13, 2015

Location: EMBL Heidelberg, Germany

Description: Translational control is a major focus of attention that extends to many fields, including development, neurobiology, cell physiology, disease, synthetic and systems biology, etc. In addition to translation of messenger RNA, the conference will feature advances in the field of non-coding RNAs, both small (miRNA) and large (lncRNA), that influence the translation process and its machinery. Novel, powerful high-throughput technologies and structural advances will also be central, as they are pushing the field forward in manners that were unthinkable only few years ago, and are helping to create a “systems” view of translation. With the increasing appreciation of the integration between different steps of gene expression, the conference will explore the connections between translation, mRNA turnover, nonsense-mediated decay, RNA localization, and nuclear events such as transcription and splicing. Finally, many alternatives to the classical “one message makes one protein” concept are being unraveled which increase the potential for regulation. These alternatives will be featured, as well as the role of translational regulation in diseases as diverse as cancer, neurological disorders or infectious diseases.

This conference is partnered with Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL).

EMBL Symposium - The non-coding genome

Starts: 12:00 am

Ends: 12:00 am, October 22, 2015

Location: EMBL Heidelberg, Germany

Description: n the 50 years since RNA was identified as a central component in the flow of genetic information, it has become increasingly clear that RNA performs many additional diverse and interesting functions. Regulatory RNAs are known to play central roles across numerous biological processes required for cell viability and function. Moreover, prokaryotic and eukaryotic genomes are pervasively transcribed to generated many additional RNAs with unknown functions, raising the question: What else does RNA do?

1. Non-coding RNAs in prokaryotes
2. miRNAs: biogenesis, function and mechanisms
3. siRNAs and piRNAs
4. Transcriptional silencing and dosage compensation\
5. Gene silencing in plants
6. Long non-coding RNAs

Dear Colleague,
I am excited to announce the microRNA 2012: International Symposium.
Join us March 25-27, 2012 in São Paulo, Brazil to discover and learn about the latest scientific advances on microRNA research.
Symposium details can be accessed at http://microrna2012.weebly.com/.
The Symposium will bring renowned speakers who will cover themes on microRNA research related to:
*Aging, Development and Evolution
*Plant research
Special early registration fees are available until December 31, 2011. Don’t miss this opportunity to take advantage of reduced registration rates.
