RNA Silencing in Plants

New roles for small RNA are emerging in germ cell fate, chromosome organization, and DNA recombination and repair, as well as in transgene silencing. This conference brings together leaders in the field of RNA silencing from around the world with the specific goal of exploring these emerging new functions, and relating them to what is known about existing mechanisms. We will explore their implications for real-world problems in plant biotechnology, plant breeding, genetic modification and plant defense for solutions in sustainable agriculture and bioenergy.
