EMBO | EMBL Symposium: The complex life of RNA

October 15 to October 18



This conference will take place at EMBL Heidelberg, with the option to attend virtually.


Symposium Overview

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) that code for proteins and noncoding RNAs are key components in the transmission of genetic information in all life forms – from viruses to complex mammalian organisms.

Following the great success of the 2022 edition of this long-standing symposium, we are looking forward to returning in 2024, bringing together leaders in the RNA field, post-docs and students, with the aim of disseminating and discussing the most recent results. The programme will include topics on transcription, RNA processing and modification, mRNA export and localisation, mRNA surveillance and decay, translation, the activity of non-coding RNAs, the control of mRNA expression, and coupling among these processes.


Session topics

  • Co-transcriptional RNA biology
  • RNA processing and modification
  • RNP on the move
  • Co-translational RNA biology
  • RNA structure and regulation
  • RNA pathogens and therapeutics
