EMBO/EMBL Symposium: Non-coding Genome 2015 Heidelberg

  • Conference Call
  • The 2015 Symposium on Non-​coding Genome, organised by the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) will commence on October 18 – 21, 2015 in Heidelberg, Germany.


    • Non-​coding RNAs in prokaryotes
    • miRNAs: biogenesis, function and mechanisms
    • siRNAs and piRNAs
    • Transcriptional silencing and dosage compensation
    • Gene silencing in plants
    • Long non-​coding RNAs


    In the 50 years since RNA was identified as a central component in the flow of genetic information, it has become increasingly clear that RNA performs many additional diverse and interesting functions. Regulatory RNAs are known to play central roles across numerous biological processes required for cell viability and function. Moreover, prokaryotic and eukaryotic genomes are pervasively transcribed to generated many additional RNAs with unknown functions, raising the question: What else does RNA do?


    This symposium will explore the diverse, dynamic and multifaceted roles of RNA across a spectrum of cellular processes. It will provide an interdisciplinary discussion of the roles of non-​coding RNAs in both prokaryotes and eukaryotes, with the aim of enhancing our understanding of gene regulation and function.

    Confirmed Speakers


    Registration Fee Waivers and Travel Grants are available for young researchers for the EMBO I EMBL Symposia Series (see below). Please indicate your interest for a Registration Fee Waiver or Travel Grant or both when submitting your abstract.

    Registration Fee Waiver: The sum that you have paid to attend the meeting will be reimbursed

    Travel Grant: Up to €500 for participants arriving from the eligible countries

    The scientific organisers will select the recipients of all fellowships during the abstract selection process.

    If you are awarded a fellowship, you will be notified after the completion of the abstract selection. This is usually 8 weeks before the event start date. Please note that you must pay your registration fee by the payment deadline (6 weeks before the event start date). The EMBL Course & Conference Office will request your bank details and reimburse the registration fees after the event. Travel Grants can only be reimbursed after the event once the receipts have been submitted.
