Location
Edinburgh, United Kingdom
Abstract
With recent exciting discoveries being made around the biological scope and mechanisms of actions for ncRNA molecules which impacts research into development and disease, this meeting couldn’t be more timely.Synthesising state-of-the-art insights that span across next-generation sequencing, functional genomics and ncRNA manipulation, this meeting aims to broaden your understanding of the mechanisms behind ncRNA’s regulation of cellular pathways. We will discuss the analyses of transcriptomic data, experiments for linking ncRNAs sequences and structure to functions, whilst addressing approaches to bridge the gap between the large number of ncRNAs identified in various species, and the lack of well-defined functions for ncRNAs.
