The past decades have seen the discovery of tens of thousands of novel noncoding RNA genes, including both short and long forms. The field is progressing rapidly, and novel functions and activity modes of these genes are being constantly uncovered in various species.
The workshop will bring together scientists with common interests in noncoding RNA biology with topics spanning from large scale ncRNA functional discoveries to detailed interrogation of individual ncRNAs acting at various stages of animal life cycle, from a wide range of species, including early bilaterians, nematodes, insects, and mammals.
