Series 8: 40 Years of mRNA Splicing: from Discovery to Therapeutics, 2017
Scope and Contents
The discovery of mRNA splicing in 1977 established a new step in the central dogma of molecular biology, the “flow” of genetic information from DNA to RNA to the protein product. Our meeting will focus on forty years of advances in this field with topics such as the spliceosome, alternative RNA splicing, diseases related to RNA splicing, and therapeutics focused on RNA splicing. The meeting will encompass discussions not only of what has already been accomplished, but also how this history continues to shape the future.
Meeting is organized by Mila Pollock, Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, Phil Sharp, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, & Joan Steitz, Yale University / HHMI.
