Noncoding RNAs: Form, Function, Physiology
Organizer(s): Joshua T. Mendell, Igor Ulitsky and Sohail F. Tavazoie
Date: February 25 - March 01, 2018
Location: Keystone Resort, Keystone, CO, USA
Sponsored by Ionis Pharmaceuticals, Inc.
Summary of Meeting:
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. To address this gap in our understanding, this conference aims to: 1) Bring together a multi-disciplinary group of scientists at all career stages to share their latest research in this field; 2) Provide a forum for the presentation of cutting-edge data on noncoding RNA structure, function and their roles in physiology and disease; and 3) Offer junior scientists outstanding mentoring and networking opportunities through close interactions with senior investigators. It is anticipated that 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.
