1st course "Post-Transcriptional Gene Regulation: Mechanisms at the Heart of Networks" - 2015

Post-transcriptional gene regulation

The aim of this course is to provide an overview of post-transcriptional gene regulations at multiple steps, including notably (pre-)messenger RNA splicing, polyadenylation, stability and translation. This course will particularly address 3 aspects: underlying molecular mechanisms, genome-wide analyses of post-transcriptional regulatory networks and the involvement in cancer, with a special session entitled “RNA towards the clinic”.

Master and PhD students, postdocs. Master students can validate 3 ECTS.

Travel fellowships: Participants (graduate students or post docs) are eligible for two travel fellowship (400 euros each) generously given by The RNA Society. Fellowship decisions will be made by the organizers based on the quality of the poster presentation. The results will be announced at the end of the course.

Number of participants limited to 25.
Selection based on application, including CV and a letter of motivation mentioning the research theme.

- Regulatory mechanisms of post-transcriptional steps of gene expression (mRNA splicing, polyadenylation,
stability, translation, etc.)
- Pan-genomic analysis of gene regulation beyond transcription (splicing arrays, RNA-Seq, CLIP-Seq,
ribosome profiling…)
- Deregulation of post-transcriptional gene expression in cancer.
- Special session: RNA in the clinic.

Each participant will present (in English) a poster about his/her research project & an article proposed by speakers (article assigned a few months in advance.
