RNA – COSI ’19

ISMB 2019, July 24-25th,

Call for abstracts

We invite you to submit your abstracts to the RNA Community of Special Interest (COSI) for ISMB 2019.

The RNA-COSI brings together experts in computational and experimental aspects of research in RNA Biology. The meeting focuses on the development of computational and high-throughput experimental methods, and the application of such methods to break new grounds in the study of RNA biology and disease. Aspects of RNA Biology and related computational methods include alternative splicing, alternative polyadenylation (APA), post-transcriptional regulation, RNA 2D/3D structure, and the expression and function of non-coding RNAs, such as micro-RNAs (miRNAs) and long non-coding RNAs (lncRNA).

If you would like to submit an abstract for an oral or poster presentation please use this link.
