Post-transcriptional Gene Regulation

4th course

The aim of this course is to provide an overview of post-transcriptional gene regulations at multiple levels, including (pre-)messenger RNA splicing, polyadenylation, modifications (epitranscriptome), localization, translation and degradation.

In addition to lectures given by international experts in the field, the course will also rely on the active contribution of participants and on their interactions with speakers. Each participant will present his scientific project (poster, elevator pitch) and will co-chair a speaker. In addition to long discussion time after each talk, participants will have the opportunity to meet speakers every day at coffee breaks and lunch.

Objectives

The aim of this course is to provide an overview of post-transcriptional gene regulations at multiple levels, including (pre-)messenger RNA splicing, polyadenylation, modifications (epitranscriptome), localization, translation and degradation.

Workshops

- Career Development Workshop

- "Elevator pitches": Each participant will introduce himself and his project in few sentences (1 minute).

- Poster sessions: Poster presentation (in English) of the participant’s research project.

- “You’re the chairman”: Each participant will introduce a speaker (scientific career and main findings) and animate discussion after the talk.

University credits (ECTS)

Master students can validate 3 ECTS

Practical information

Details

Topics

- Regulatory mechanisms of post-transcriptional steps of gene expression (mRNA splicing, polyadenylation, modifications, localization, translation and degradation).

- Pan-genomic analysis of gene regulation beyond transcription (RNA-Seq, CLIP-Seq, polysome/ ribosome profiling…)

- Post-transcriptional gene regulation in pathology and therapy (session “RNA toward the clinic”)
