About the Workshop
The dynamics of ribonucleoprotein complexes (RNPs) is increasingly recognised as an important driving force of development and disease. Mutations causing cancer or neurodegenerative diseases such as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) often act by changing the dynamics of RNP assembly and disassembly. This meeting will bring together scientists who study the roles of RNPs in development or disease with diverse methods, such as RNP interactomics, CLIP, computatonal modelling, biophysics and imaging. It will offer an opportunity to exchange knowledge and discuss future opportunities to further integrate the following complementary approaches:
- transcriptomics and proteomics of protein-RNA networks
- dynamics of RNPs through phase separation
- biological roles of RNPs in development, cancer or neurodegeneration
About EMBO Courses and Workshops
EMBO Courses and Workshops are selected for their excellent scientific quality and timelines, provision of good networking activities for all participants and speaker gender diversity (at least 40% of speakers must be from the underrepresented gender).
Organisers are encouraged to implement measures to make the meeting environmentally more sustainable.
