72nd Harden Conference - RNA regulators of gene expression

72nd Harden Conference - RNA regulators of gene expression

72nd Harden Conference

Meeting background
In the past few years novel regulatory RNA elements have been identified in both eukaryota and prokaryota, including siRNAs, piRNAs, miRNAs, sRNAs, CRISPRs, riboswitches and RNA thermometers. These elements can fine tune gene expression according to the output of complex signalling networks but also provide simple switches that respond to macroscopic changes in the cellular environment (e.g. temperature). The aim of this meeting is to provide a forum to discuss parallels and differences between eukaryotic and prokaryotic systems, achieving a better understanding of the role of RNA in regulating gene expression.
