RNAi and Related Pathways
Organizer(s): Craig C. Mello, Phillip D. Zamore and James C. Carrington
Date: January 26 - 31, 2006
Location: Fairmont Hotel Vancouver, Vancouver, BC, Canada
Sponsored by Abbott Laboratories, Inc. and Alnylam Pharmaceuticals, Inc.
Summary of Meeting:
RNA silencing phenomena in a variety of plants, animals and fungi share a common underlying mechanism. At the heart of this mechanism lies an ancient double-stranded RNA processing machinery that functions in RNA-based immunity, developmental gene regulation, transcriptional silencing and genomic stability. The aim of this meeting is to explore similarities and differences between these related pathways, to probe the underlying molecular mechanisms and to explore new methods for harnessing these mechanisms for gene discovery and therapeutics applications.
