What’s new with DNA and RNA?
Eukaryotic gene expression is regulated at multiple layers. This session will cover emerging new mechanisms of gene expression regulation, centered around DNA and RNA. We will hear updates on regulation at the nucleosome structure and chromatin conformation level, how noncoding RNAs could impact transcription, and RNA modifications in post-transcriptional gene expression regulation. This session also will introduce diverse modern imaging technologies to visualize transcription activity and spatial transcriptome.
Keywords: chromatin structure, noncoding RNA, RNA modifications, super-resolution imaging, spatial transcriptome
Who should attend: students, postdocs and anyone interested in gene expression regulation, nucleosome structure and chromatin conformation, noncoding RNA and RNA modifications, super-resolution imaging and spatial transcriptome

Pesticide users sometimes know very little about how inerts function. That’s partly because they are regulated very differently than active ingredients.
The gene editing treatment from Vertex Pharmaceuticals and CRISPR Therapeutics is the first of its kind
