Biogenesis and turnover of small RNAs 15—17 January 2013 Royal Society, Edinburgh, UK

Meeting background
In the last decade, high throughput sequencing has enabled a rapid expansion in the identification of small RNAs that exist within a cell. These small RNAs have been shown to play diverse roles in gene regulation and genome defense. The aim of this meeting is to bring together scientists studying the biology of small RNAs, focusing on biogenesis and function.


  • Defining small RNAs
  • MicroRNA biogenesis and function
  • Interplay between small RNA biogenesis and other RNP complexes
