2nd course Post-transcriptional gene regulation : Mechanisms and networks - 2016

Post-transcriptional gene regulation

This course will provide an overview of post-transcriptional gene regulations (splicing, polyadenylation, methylation, stability and translation of (pre-) messenger RNAs). It will notably cover molecular mechanisms, genome-wide analyses and implications in cancer (session “RNA towards the clinic”).

This theoretical course is complementary to a practical course held at CRG in Barcelona the following week. Applications for the theoretical and/or practical courses must be made here.

Organizers : M-C. Daugeron, M. Dutertre, S. Vagner

Master and PhD students, postdocs.
Participants and speakers will be encouraged to meet each other at coffee breaks, lunches and poster sessions.

Number of participants limited to 30.
Selection based on application, including a short CV and a letter of motivation mentioning the research theme.
