Aim of the meeting

In the last years, our knowledge of RNA-regulated processes like microRNA-mediated gene expression control, alternative splicing and RNA editing has noticeably expanded. Understanding the scope, mechanisms and evolutionary patterns of such molecular porcesses has emerged as a new challenge in biology, medicine, and evolution. The objective of this workshop is to bring together molecular and evolutionary biologists to discuss the variability of the RNA processing mechanisms, their adaptive roles and the promise of next generation sequencing technologies in order to study their impact in genome evolution.
