The structural and functional versatility of RNA lends support to the RNA world hypothesis.

About this Event

Ever since the advent of the RNA world hypothesis, when it was discovered that RNA has many diverse functions of RNA, these molecules have been in the limelight of medicine and biology. In addition to the widely known role of mRNA as a central player in the flow of information from genes to protein building, non-coding RNA molecules have important regulatory functions across numerous biological processes. Recent advances in non-coding RNA biology have high-lighted the critical importance of these molecules in the pathophysiology of human disease.This symposium will explore the diverse, dynamic, and multifaceted roles of non-coding RNA, including catalytic RNAs, short microRNAs (miRNAs), and long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) in gene regulation and their potential as novel therapeutic targets in human disease.
