Non-Coding Genome

9th Edition

NON-CODING GENOME : non-coding RNAs as pivotal players of cell homeostasis, stress responses and disease

This course will explore the versatility of non-genic DNA elements and non-coding RNAs across a spectrum of cellular processes, in humans and model organisms, and their implication in physiology and disease. Internationally recognized experts will present their latest findings related to the identification and functional characterization of the noncoding genome and discuss novel concepts in genome regulation and evolution, with a strong emphasis on experimental and computational tools. Thematic sessions will include long and small non-coding RNAs, transposable elements, structural DNA repeats and non-coding regulatory elements. This course will offer to young students and research fellows the opportunity to broaden their knowledge and discuss their work with an international scientific community in a warm and stimulating environment at the Institut Curie in Paris.

  • present their own research during the Poster sessions and discuss it with colleagues;
  • present recent research articles in the field of non-coding genome during Journal clubs;
  • train their communication skills in English;
  • establish or enlarge their professional contacts;
  • get insights into carrier development in academic research and beyond.

Workshops
