About the Workshop

High-throughput sequencing results in recent decades have revealed that transcription of the eukaryotic genome goes beyond coding regions and uncovered an overwhelming amount of novel functional RNAs. The list of these RNAs is constantly increasing and includes lncRNAs, circular RNAs and enhancer RNAs, among others, with crucial roles in genome organization, transcriptional and posttranscriptional gene regulation. The basic mechanisms of action of these RNAs are only beginning to emerge and are most likely exhibited due to specific RNA secondary and tertiary structure, as previously found for other RNAs, e.g. ribosomal RNAs and tRNAs. Nevertheless, the connection between RNA structural biology and RNA function is still in its infancy. To deeply understand how molecules work, detailed knowledge of their structures is necessary.

The overall aim of this EMBO Workshop on RNA Structure meets Function is to promote scientific exchange and synergies across the fields of RNA structure and RNA function by gathering leading established and upcoming scientists to discuss and exchange the most recent advances in these areas and the latest cutting-edge technologies to tackle them. Among the topics to be covered in this EMBO Workshop are:

  • Structural RNA biology
  • Function of non-coding RNAs

  • Large RNA/RNP complexes
  • RNA and chromatin
  • RNA dynamics
  • Translational regulation by RNA
  • RNA modifications

Travel grants

A limited number of travel grants are available for participants. Applicants do not need to apply separately for travel grants for this event but should indicate on the registration form if they wish to be considered for a travel grant. Selection of awardees is handled directly by the organizer who will notify all eligible participants. More information is available at EMBO Travel Grants page.

Child care grant

EMBO Courses and Workshops offers grants to offset additional child care costs incurred by participants or speakers when participating at any EMBO Courses and Workshop funded meeting. Eligible costs include fees for a caregiver or child-care facility, travel costs for a caregiver, or travel costs for taking the child to the meeting etc. Please indicate on the registration form whether you would like to be considered for the grant. Please also describe how you intend to use the child care grant and specify the sum that you will need.

About the Area

The conference centre, Skåvsjöholm, is located close to Stockholm in the famous Roslagen-Stockholm Archipelago, about 31 km north of Stockholm. The conference centre is located directly at the coast, offering beautiful views over the archipelago. All participants will be housed within the conference centre. All catering (during breaks, breakfast, lunch and dinner) will be provided in the centre (except excursions).

The conference centre has a restaurant, bar, sauna, fitness room, private beach, large garden area, sunny terraces, and other spaces for socializing, discussions and watching the European Cup football games on the 30th of June.

The Stockholm archipelago is a cluster of some 30,000 islands and rocks spreading 80 km east from Stockholm into the Baltic Sea. It is world-famous for its beautiful nature, allowing all kind of outdoor activities like hiking, fishing, sea kayaking, biking, and swimming. The following websites provide more information about the area and nearby attractions:
