EMBO|EMBL Symposium: The Complex Life of RNA

03 October 2018 - 06 October 2018

Heidelberg 69117, Germany

Before the genetic information stored in DNA can be used to direct cell growth and metabolism, it has to be transferred into RNA.  Messenger RNAs (mRNAs) are key components in the transmission of genetic information in all life forms - from viruses to complex mammalian organisms. Exciting recent findings have revealed a remarkable degree of complexity in the lives of mRNAs and the field is rapidly developing.
