|Description||The second Computational RNA Biology conference will bring together computational researchers with experimentalists interested in non-coding RNA biology to discuss the latest developments in this fast moving field.
In recent years, there have been important advances in identifying and understanding non-coding RNAs. They are involved in many biological processes and are increasingly seen as important in disease. Computational approaches greatly assist our understanding of how to characterise and understand the biological functions of these molecules.
This meeting will cover all aspects of RNA biology with a focus on computational methods to elucidate structure, function and interactions of non-coding RNAs across different species. We expect to see many new exciting results unveiled through the application of high-throughput sequencing as well as single sequence approaches. This meeting follows on from the successful first conference held in 2014, which was characterised by excellent presentations and vibrant discussions.
