LncRNA Evolution: Non-Conserved Functions and Species Uniqueness
Registered attendees can view abstracts starting on 02/15/2015
Here, we will focus on one of the grandest challenges in contemporary biology: Why are the sequences of biologically essential lncRNAs - in contrast to protein-coding genes - often not conserved, even between closely related species? The speakers will discuss functions of non-conserved lncRNAs, focusing on lncRNA roles in species phenotypic uniqueness, species-specific disease, and networks that highlight the need to leverage clinical studies and samples in the pursuit of basic science.

In vivo Roles of lncRNAs: The Promises and Limitations of Animal Models
Registered attendees can view abstracts starting on 02/15/2015
Animal models for conserved lncRNAs with crucial human disease functions, such as MALAT-1, have surprisingly failed to recapitulate the human phenotypes. The goal of this session is to develop a mechanistic understanding of these limitations - and to highlight other animal models in which human lncRNAs, including non-conserved ones, can be more tractable.

LncRNA Mechanisms: Diversity and Heterogeneity
Registered attendees can view abstracts starting on 02/15/2015
Epigenetic or post-transcriptional? Nuclear or cytoplasmic? Single-gene antisense regulators or network cascade amplifiers? This session will present the frontiers of current knowledge about metazoan lncRNA functional mechanisms, and motivate the development of specific approaches to survey and target these mechanisms on a whole-transcriptome scale.

Transcription Factors and lncRNAs: Direct Endogenous Riboregulation
Registered attendees can view abstracts starting on 02/15/2015
A highlight of 21st-century lncRNAomics has been the discovery that transcription factors including homeobox proteins and multiple nuclear hormone receptors, as well as epigenetic modifiers, directly interact with lncRNAs. This session will discuss the impact of these interactions on gene regulation.

LncRNAs in Human Disease: Toward Rational Ribo-Therapeutics
Registered attendees can view abstracts starting on 02/15/2015
This session will survey direct functional evidence implicating lncRNAs as causes of human disease, and also identify settings where lncRNAs without obvious endogenous function may serve as therapeutic targets. Harnessing the power of lncRNAomics to impute and perturb lncRNA-dependent regulatory networks, the session will canvass cutting-edge developments in industry, where rational therapeutics targeting lncRNA disease mechanisms are being developed.
