RNA Sciences in Cell and Developmental Biology II

The 22nd CDB Meeting is entitled "RNA Sciences in Cell and Developmental Biology II". The aim of this meeting is to bring leading scientists from all over the world with a common interest in the regulation of gene expression through "RNA molecules" to share ideas and concepts and discuss the future direction of this exciting research field.

The meeting will cover following topics:
-mRNA Processing
-RNA Export
-Translational Control
-mRNA Localization
-RNA Quality Control
-RNA Silencing
-Non-coding RNA

Applicants are encouraged to submit poster abstracts with their applications. A small number of poster abstracts (approximately 8) will be selected by the organizing committee for oral presentations. A limited number of travel fellowships will be made available to young scientists from abroad.

We look forward to seeing you in Kobe!
