The Gordon Research Seminar on RNA Editing is a unique forum for graduate students, post-docs, and other scientists with comparable levels of experience and education to present and exchange new data and cutting edge ideas.
The focus of this meeting will be on structure, function, specificity of RNA editing and modifications and their respective enzymes, as well as the evolution and biological role of editing and modification in health and disease.
