4.6.18, DK RNA Biology students presenting @ RNA Society Meeting 2018, Berkeley

The 23rd Annual Meeting of the RNA Society, “RNA 2018″, took place in Berkeley, CA, USA, from 29 May  to 3 June –  of course with participation of members of our doctoral program. 

From the four PhD students attending, two had been selected for oral presentations, which exemplifies the international recognition of and interest in the RNA research being performed within our doctoral program.

Andrés Magán García (group Schroeder) gave a talk about “When antisense makes sense: exploring the role of RNA polymerase-binding RNA aptamers in control of bacterial antisense transcription”.
Utkarsh Kapoor (group M. Jantsch) had his talk on “Global Interplay of A-to-I RNA editing and pre-mRNA Splicing”.
Sabrina Summer (group Rossmanith) presented her project “The human homolog of a bacterial endonuclease is essential for mitochondiral gene expression”.
And associated student Elena Galimberti (group Leeb) presented her study on “Role of nonsense-mediated mRNA decay in the exit from pluripotency”.
