The RNA Society of Japan

The 2nd Kansai RNA Club meeting, titled "Architecture and Function of Biological Assemblies," will be held on December 5th (Tuesday) at the 1F Auditorium of the RIKEN Center for Developmental Biology in Kobe.

In this symposium, researchers from both domestic and international institutions who are conducting research to elucidate a wide range of dynamic higher-order structures and their functions using advanced research techniques such as genomics analysis and live imaging analysis will deliver presentations on the roles of higher-order structures in various contexts, including the mechanisms of higher-order structure formation, the role of RNA in structural formation, transcription, translation, development, and differentiation. We look forward to your participation!
