The biochemical modifications made to RNA after transcription, called the epitranscriptome, play a critical role in life. The development of new technologies has transformed the field in recent years. Our understanding of the reason for and regulation of RNA editing and modifications, as well as their roles in human infection and disease is deepening and therapeutic applications are emerging. This conference will bring together leading experts in RNA editing and modifications, technology development, and medicine to present and discuss cutting edge research. We anticipate that participants of this conference will benefit from learning the cutting edge of the rapidly advancing field and help move the field forward by creating collaboration opportunities.
