Noncoding RNAs

Recent research has revealed pervasive transcription of eukaryotic genomes outside of protein-coding genes. The resulting noncoding RNA transcripts come in many forms, perform diverse functions and play critical roles in organismal health and disease. Tens of thousands of noncoding RNAs have been identified so far, but we are still at the earliest stages of understanding their regulation and function. Such knowledge will be critical in order to harness the full potential of noncoding RNAs for the diagnosis and treatment of human diseases. It is anticipated that this conference will allow the interactions of participants with diverse backgrounds, expertise and experimental models will spur new lines of investigation and collaborations that will lead to breakthroughs in our understanding of the noncoding transcriptome.

Nucleic Acid Therapeutics is the leading journal in its field focusing on cutting-edge basic research, therapeutic applications, and drug development using nucleic acids or related compounds to alter gene expression.
