DESCRIPTION:
Since the first description of miRNAs in the early 1990s, there has
been a steady stream of discoveries on how these small non-coding RNAs
regulate gene expression.  Please join local academic and industry
researchers who will present on the advantages of using miRNA for
screening, as a basic research tool, for therapeutics and as means to
decipher complex biological systems.  Talks will describe in detail how
you can bring these capabilities into your lab.  The daylong session
will be followed by an interactive round table, and a hosted reception.
***Participation is FREE.***Registration DEADLINE next Wednesday, Feb.
