21st Swiss RNA Workshop

The 21st Swiss RNA workshop took place on January 24, 2020, at the University of Bern. Over 200 RNA aficionados from Switzerland and abroad came together for a full day of exciting RNA research and interactions.

This year’s keynote speakers were Nicholas Luscombe (Francis Crick Institute & University College London, London, UK) on “Using hiCLIP to discover long-range loops in mRNAs: what do these loops do?” and Reinhard Lührmann (Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry, Göttingen, Germany) on “Structural insights into major design principles of the human spliceosome”. Thirteen talks, selected by the organizers from submitted abstracts, were given and over forty posters were presented.

We would like to thank the RNA Society for its continued financial support and this year’s company sponsors Axonlab, Huberlab, Lexogen, Merck, Microsynth, Qiagen, Takara and VectorBuilder. The 22nd Swiss RNA Workshop is planned to take place on Friday, January 29, 2021, at the University of Bern.
