RNA Biology Lecture Series

The aim of these lectures is to provide a comprehensive educational offering in the field of RNA Biology for MSc and PhD students. The NCCR RNA & Disease offers the unique chance to have lectures taught by leading experts in the field from five Swiss research institutions covering a wide range of aspects of RNA biology.

The lectures take place in the autumn semester and will alternate each year between the University of Bern and ETH Zurich.

Lecture Series I: Transcription & Processing & Translation (Autumn Semester 2020: ETH Zurich)

Thursdays, 15:45-17:300, ETH Zürich Hönggerberg, HCI H8.1

For the moment, the lecture is planned to take place in a hybrid model. Please consult the course catalogue entry linked below for more information regarding the hybrid model:
