Workshop on The Long and The Short of it: Role of ncRNAs in Hematopoiesis
Two-thirds of the genome is transcribed into RNA, yet less than 2 percent is translated into protein. What is all that noncoding RNA doing? Recent findings suggest possible regulatory roles for noncoding RNA. The purpose of this workshop is to explore the latest research implicating noncoding RNAs as a functional component of hematopoiesis. Gaps in knowledge that would either support or refute this notion will be identified to help define opportunities, directions, and approaches for future research.
